Fiddleheads Violin Studio Testimonials & Feedback: Repairs
I am glad you find [my violin purchased at another shop] easier to play and sounding better. I value your opinion a great deal. am looking forward to getting it back. I had to work hard and use a lot of pressure to get something out of "The Beast" before. I will have to change its name to Beauty now instead of the Beast.
Thanks so much for fixing up all that could be fixed and I am greatly encouraged that you find it so much improved. You shipped the lot to me without payment. Now that's trust.
I will absolutely let you know when the parcel arrives. I am really looking forward to the transformation from beast to beauty!
Anyway, send along the invoice and I will send along the payment with great appreciation and thanks for your great service. My daughter is getting a new case, I get a new shoulder rest and mute and a new and improved violin along with a great customer experience. A guy can't lose!
UPDATE: I haven't had much chance to play my violin yet, but my very first impression is that it is a different instrument than the one I sent off to you. It is so much easier to play. A light pressure with the bow is all that is needed now whereas I needed lots of pressure to get much out it, especially the G string.
The tone is much sweeter as you said. I can still hear some of the nasalness you mentioned but the overall quality of sound has improved so much I can live with some nasal quality. I'll just pretend its a fine French violin LOL.
I am very happy with the results and want to thank you and your luthier for taking the time and care turn the Beast into a Beauty. I'm a bit sad to think that I waited for so long before I decided to do something about the fiddle as I have struggled with it for a long time, but if I ever need anything more done I know where I will be sending it along with my girl's instruments.
Eventually [my daughter] will want a new violin. She has made great progress this year and the red sparkly won't cut it for too much longer. I will turning to you when the time comes. I know I will be able to rely on you to provide a good quality experience for her.
Thanks so much again for all you have done. It has been real fun being in touch with you once again and a great pleasure doing business with you.
