               "Davds violins are so much fun to play!  Easy response and beautiful full tone.  It is a joy to know a living maker/luthier whose art can help me create my art."

Alex Shlifer,Violinist- Greenville Symphony

           "What is interesting that David' s violins I tried offer very interesting personality , never the same, while possessing great projection and smoothness even without a break in period . So every time I put away my Gofriller and Amati and switch to David' s Guarneri it takes me to a journey which gets more exciting as I continue.   Also he is an excellent Luthier who I trust my old Italians. "

Matt Davis, Appalachian State University, playing my Viola at the Happy Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention at Lenoir, NC.    I didn't think he could put it down...but alas, he decided his tuition was more important.

Shanda Epley (for her daughter Lilly) --

          "She loves the violin you made-  We brought home three violins from Blue Ridge Violins -my parents, daughter and Russ all vote in Blind trial yours had best sound quality and then they liked the look the best too."
