“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.”
