I constantly try violins, especially by contemporary makers, since I am a violinist passionate about stringed instruments... In every instrument one certainly appreciate is the sound, the aesthetic, the workmanship, how it is assembled, the tonal quality... and it is difficult to make all these factors coincide to choose a violin without a doubt. In Andrea Cabrini's violins, I have always found all these components, having tried and played enough of them and it impresses and amazes me that playing one after the other, the sound average of his violins is always very high. I tried some of his violins just finished, not yet played, and after the first minutes playing, the violins are ready and open - the sound is already mature that seems to have already been played for years. Then, there is the aesthetic part and the workmanship that is impeccable, with non-invasive varnishes to the beauty of the wood, and shape and character of the violin that the author manages to give. A particular attention, not to be underestimated for violinists, is the comfort of the neck and fingerboard worked by the author, where in addition to being comfortable for the movement of the fingers, it is absolutely precise to find a good intonation, without the left hand struggling. Between the many names of luthiers, and many violins I have tried, I am absolutely convinced that I made the right choice to buy a violin by Andrea Cabrini. Even today, comparing to others, even by well-known luthiers, it is difficult to find an instrument with similar qualities.
