About the maker
The maker, Ming Jiang Zhu, is a "VSA" (Violin Society of America) gold medal winner! He has won the greatest number and highest level of awards in that highly prestigious international competition. He has become one of the most frequently awarded violinmakers in the world. Fiddlershop is proud to sell these fine instruments which would surely cost many times more if they came from any European country. This instrument is as beautiful to look at, as it is easy to play. It has all the wonderful qualities of a fine professional instrument and reminds me of the sound from fine Italian old violins.
I bought my Ming Jiang Zhu 2 months ago. My violin needed to be a 1/2 size and Michael was wonderful at making sure I could buy exactly what I wanted and I received my special order in no time at all. It was set up perfectly...the only thing I needed to so when I received it was to rosin up my bow! This gorgeous violin has a huge sound and a big surprise for me since mine is a 1/2! It is mellow and deep. I love it and like many other violinists, I don't want to put it down. In my opinion the Fiddlershop is the finest, friendliest violin shop anywhere....I have purchased 3 violins from them and each purchase has been a great experience. I love that Pierre has out together a program to learn to play the violin along with many great pieces of music to choose from. If you have ever had a notion to play the violin...stop by the Fiddlerman or do as I did and call them. You will not be disappointed, and your world of music will bring you much joy.
After 6 weeks of playing my 3/4 MJZ 905 I can recommend it without reservation to any small adult or talented child. The sound is full, richly resonant on the G and D strings and sweet on the A and E strings. Fiddlerman, Pierre, highly recommended it to me and had it setup specially to maximize its capabilities knowing that I am an adult who will never graduate to a larger instrument. It is easy to play and very responsive to the bow, in my case, the 3-star Holstein pernambuco that I purchased last year. I can now play grace notes and fast passages with the left hand and the Kaplan Amo strings on my Little Ming reverberate through the wood beautifully. Under my ear it is very satisfying, but when I listen to talented friends play it, the sound brings tears to my eyes. It is immensely capable. The finish is gorgeous and the boxwood fittings are handsome. If you are a smaller or less flexible adult, this 3/4 is what you want and are having a hard time finding. If you have a talented child, this fine 3/4 will prevent them from rushing prematurely to a full sized instrument just for better sound. Trust Fiddlerman and his staff. They are consummate musicians and buyers of fine instruments. Thank you, Pierre, I am deeply grateful. You listened and found me exactly what I had wanted.
I’m very pleased with the instrument, bow and case. I purchased it about four weeks ago and in every way it is a superior instrument to my student violin. The more I play it the more the tone deepens...it is a very good value for the money and I’m very happy with my purchase.
Mike, Thank you so very much for helping me select the Ming Jiang Zhu 905. It is a superb instrument! I could have never imagined how good it sounded straight out of the box. I am very satisfied with the last violin I will ever need to buy. Gary
Fiddlershop made an entire video showcasing three violins for me to choose. The instrument and bow I ordered even came with a free case. Thanks to Pierre and Asa for helping me choose this beautiful instrument.
