Hiroshi Kono

Crafted in Chiba Prefecture, Japan, the Hiroshi Kono label bears the Japanese Kanji, "美 音" which translates as "beautiful sound”.  This slender yet sonorous violin indeed has a beautiful sound, and many famous artists such as Joshua Bell and Michelle Kim own Hiroshi Kono violins.  Crisp, yet warm and complex, this violin provides very powerful projection for the strong player.  Beautifully and tastefully antiqued, with a one-piece back.  Perfect for the advanced student, discerning amateur, or budget-minded professional. This is truly a marvelous instrument for the money.  Available in smaller sizes by special order.
