I have tried many Folland violins over the years and have twice ordered violins with very specific, nuanced differences. I had complete confidence that the instruments, when completed, would have all of the qualities I wanted. They have proven themselves daily, in orchestral, chamber and solo performance, to be all that I had wished for and more.Peter McGuire

Owners’ testimonials

“My Folland violin has, from day one, exhibited an incredible depth of tone on the lower strings and a sweetness on the E that I have heard only in the greatest old masters. That, with its remarkable projection and lightning quick response, makes it a joy to play. I am amazed that it continues to improve and get better every day.2nd Concertmaster, Zurich Tonehalle Orchestra

“David is a true master and one of the great violin makers in the world today”
Aaron Janse, Minnesota Orchestra
