Xuechang Sun - Fiddleheads Series

Xuechang Sun - Fiddleheads Series

Award-winning master maker Xuechang Sun has been making violin since the 1960's and is the brilliant artist behind our flagship student violins

Mr. Sun earned a Gold medal for craftsmanship and a Silver medal for tone in cello making at the National Violin Making Competition in China (1987) and a certificate of merit for bass workmanship at the 15th Annual International Violin Society of America (VSA) Competition and Exhibition (2002).

Though basic models of Mr. Sun's workshop instruments are sold by other shops via various distributors, Fiddleheads' Sun models are in an entirely different league. Fiddleheads' owner Rhiannon Nachbaur has worked closely with the workshop manager directly for many years to produce and further develop exclusive, improved editions of these instruments.

From the cured and flamed tone woods to her chosen custom varnishes, warm and clear tone and delicate finishing work, you can trust it's all been finely honed between Rhiannon and this superb workshop. Further specialized improvements to a top-to-bottom setup in Canada and Rhiannon's rigorous testing makes ours the finest possible student violins on the market for the tone, playability and price for discerning student musicians of all ages.

Fun fact: Most Fiddleheads Violin Studio students studying with Rhiannon since 2002 had their musical start on a Sun workshop violin or viola! These instruments have been there for hundreds of our students and customers so Rhiannon have a special place in her heart for them.
