Who I’ve Worked With
Gary's violins are some of the best quality 5-strings that don't break the bank. I have had his London model acoustic-electric since 2012 and have yet to find a better amplified sound from a violin. Darol Anger, one of the best five-string players out there, use his fiddles for gigging instruments.
Great Teaching Instrument
Glasser recently came out with a sub $1000 five-string and they are GREAT for the price. They sound very much like a student instrument, but they are far more durable than a regular fiddle. I recommend anyone who is looking for a low cost teaching instrument to pick one up immediately. They even have 5- string viola and cellos!
