Eric Caldwell Violin, 1999

Eric Caldwell is a fabulously talented contemporary American violin maker. He is a young man and has a brilliant future ahead of him. American violin makers sell their instruments for what the market will bear. A typical American made contemporary violin sells for between $5,000 and $20,000.  So if he becomes very famous the prices of his instruments will go up. This violin has a warm and rich tone with a very refined quality.
