Yes that’s the word Michael used when talking to me – bright. I believe he said he himself prefers the bright sound of the Damiano, but I like the deep richness of the Marina…that’s why its so nice to be able to try them out, because different people have different tastes. A few years back I went to a music store looking to upgrade….they showed me a Romanian violin in the case and never offered to let me try it! I remember looking at it and thinking “It’s pretty, but how can I know if I like it if I don’t try it.” It certainly seemed like a no-brainer and I still can’t believe they didn’t offer to let me try it – I was seriously considering buying it! Anyway, all that to say…definitely try whatever instrument you are considering. 🙂
