Scott Shu-kun Cao is listed among the best-known contemporary violin makers in the world. His instruments are currently in the hands of soloists, famous professional players, and collectors.Scott's instruments are renowned for primarily their tonal quality. Among makers, Scott's violins are said to not only project a beautiful sound but are also aesthetically superior.
This violin is made, start to finish, by Scott Cao himself! Scott has won countless awards at the Violin Society of America, and many other places. His violins are hard to come by as he only makes a select few each year. This is his "superior" model - using specially selected and treated wood older than 25 years.
This particular instrument is a copy of the "Kreisler" 1730 by Guarneri del Gesu, and was made by Scott in the fall of 2016. In our opinion, this is the best sounding violin we have in the shop.

I have not bought but played
First off right off the bat, I have friends that own a lot of violins. I do not own this violin but I can honestly say after playing this violin. It's well worth the money if you have the money. If you are going professional in a career like this absolutely 100% buy this violin. It impressed me how responsive it is. If you go into a professional violin shop maybe you can find it. But you have to be close to the owners of the violin shop. 100% saving up for this violin. No I am not a verified buyer but take my word for it if you find this violin play it.
Thank you for your feedback James! Scott Cao's original violins sound absolutely amazing, and this violin is probably the best sounding violin we have in our shop right now!
