Ming Jiang Zhu (d. 2014) was one of the world's most respected contemporary violin makers and an incredible genius worthy of international fame

Mr. Zhu won dozens of awards over three decades years, including two Gold Medals in Violin Making [1994 and 2006] and a Silver Award in Viola making [1996], in the elite Violin Society of America Competitions. These impressive and enviable accolates saw him gain much respect in the luthier world, in practice rooms and concert halls and beyond.

Trust that Fiddleheads' Zhu violins are the only Zhu workshop instruments precisely setup in Canada to Rhiannon's demanding professional symphony musician standards and stand above similar offerings from other shops. Plus, we don't change the model numbers to suit our own purposes.

Following his untimely death in 2014, his distinguished legacy lives on through the workshop he founded and which produces instruments in his celebrated style and methods.

Fun Fact: Fiddleheads' owner Rhiannon Nachbaur knew Mr. Zhu personally since the early 2000s and brought his workshop instruments to the forefront of the Canadian and American market. He chose one of his own handmade instruments from his personal collection especially for her to play professionally in symphony and in her two orchestral Concertmaster roles.
