What We Think

Full stop: if you're a classical player looking for a diamond-in-the-rough used instrument, you just found it.  This is the first we've ever seen of Boaz' work but, based on this alone, the man is a masterful luthier with access to tremendous materials (Brazilian everywhere!).  The sonorous, profound voice of this instrument can be felt in your chest when you're playing it.  Like church bells on a hairpin trigger!
