“I had the pleasure to audition the violins of Owens & Parkley. Their violins are well made and they have a strong and rich sound which is even across all strings.
The violins have a quick response and are therefore quite easy to play.
All this makes them a wonderful and affordable choice for young musicians.
Congratulations, Mr. Daniel and Owens & Parkley crews.”

After the fine set up, 2~3 violinists play for optimal sound adjusting. Tone is powerful, as well as a particularly smooth playing response. The tops and backs are carefully tuned and graduated, the bass bars finely fitted, and the Owens & Parkley Black label has beautiful looking varnished with tastefully antiqued. High quality ebony or boxwood pegs are precisely fitted, and the fingerboard is planed for proper scoop. A high quality French bridge carved by our workshop is accurately fitted. We use Evah Pirazzi, Thomastik Vision Titanium, or Thomastik Infeld PI strings for this model violins.
For Los Angeles Violin Shop customer, we would confidently recommend this product for the step up serious students.
