Hey Clark! The Ming Jiang Zhu is a heavily marketed violin that I have the ability to send out to customers as well. I played many of these instruments over the years from various students finding them and bringing them to lessons. In my opinion, the Ming Jiang Zhu isn’t as powerful as the Damiano, and many of my other students that have tried both came to the same conclusion. The Ming Jiang Zhu is not a bad instrument by any stretch of the imagination, but almost all of my try-before-you-buy customers have preferred the Damiano or Marina over the Ming Jiang Zhu. If you are interested, I could actually send you both instruments (or even all three) for you to try, so you can compare and see for yourself. Feel free to give me a call on my cell phone if you are interested in the try-before-you-buy program.
