"It has been my pleasure and privilege to play
Andranik Gaybaryan’s violin over the past year. This instrument’s
beautiful sound helped me with performances on many concert stages as
well as high resolution recordings and always drew praise from those
hearing it. Its quality of sound has been remarkably consistent. I am
always confident it will project a clear, rich tone whether in the
coldest winter evening in a small chamber music venue or on a
sweltering summer day in front of a symphony orchestra.
As one who is used to playing violins that are hundreds of years old I
loved discovering a brand new master’s instrument. I am honored and
happy to recommend Andranik’s work both to players and other violin

single one of his violins that I tried was amazing,each one with
slightly different characteristics. Ennobled sound, rich dimensions,
imbued with all the subtlety of one of the grandmasters of violin
making such as Stradivari or Guarneri del Jesu. My violin is clear as a
bell. It is the easiest violin to play I have ever tried. It teaches
you. I will likely never perform on any other makers violins again."
