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.
At Fiddlershop we will personally go through these violins thoroughly and test/tune/adjust them before shipping out. The violin will arrive ready to play out of the box.
I was so excited to finally find a shop that carries a 7/8 size violin. This is such a beautiful violin! I totally love the sound and the quality is outstanding. I purchased the 7/8th size and was a bit worried about how well it would project but I have not been disappointed at all. It produces such a beautiful tone, is very responsive, and each note seems to resonate. It exceeds the sound of my full-size violin (which was an expensive violin) and for my small hands is much easier for me to play. It can be risky to purchase a violin online but with the guarantee that I could return it, I took the risk and am so glad I did. This violin exceeds my expectations in every way. Thanks, Fiddlershop. Your customer service is great.
I cannot say enough about my experience with the Fiddlershop quality and service. A gift to myself for my 65th birthday was the Ming Jiang Zhu 907 Violin. The sound that comes forth from this beautifully crafted instrument fills my soul with joy. I looked at all the models available and decided that this was a perfect fit. I am learning to play and currently working on the piece of music "Shindler's List". I am in love and cannot keep my hands off this violin. Worth the price in every way. Thanks you so much for the encouragement that you can learn a new instrument at my age. Lynn
Full rich tone. Makes me play better. Huge upgrade from my last violin.
I have now owned my MJZ 907 for about a month and I am ever more impressed with the sound, playability, and beauty of this instrument. I originally purchased a 905, but after a couple of weeks found a couple of issues that I decided I didn't want to "live with". So, I decided to upgrade to the 907. Now, the 905 was a nice instrument, but was a little to unrefined sounding for my taste. Michael H. was extremely gracious in helping me return the 905 and choosing (along with help from his dad, Pierre) a perfect 907. This violin is gorgeous to look at and the sound is so balanced, rich sounding, and refined. All four strings sound clear and pure. All the notes and harmonics are in the right places. It plays like silk and sounds incredible. It makes me a better violinist! I have it paired with a Holstein 2-star bow and together they make beautiful music - no whistling, no wolf tones, just a pure, rich sound. I am very grateful for all of the input and help that Michael H. gave. He responded quickly to all of my email questions and could not have been more pleasant to deal with. I will only deal with Fiddlershop in the future and have recommended them to many other violinists. You simply can't go wrong dealing with these guys!
