Ifshin Violins

Our own Haide Lin and Artur Friedhoff win awards at the VSA!

Our own master luthier Haide Lin won a silver medal at the recent Violin Society of America competition in Indianapolis. He also received a certificate of merit for workmanship for one of his violins. This is not the first time Haide has won awards for his beautiful instruments. The cello that won the silver medal is here at our shop for interested cellists.

We are all especially pleased that Artur Friedhoff, a talented young luthier who has become a valuable and important member of our shop, also received a certificate of merit for tone for his violin. This is the first time he has entered one of his instruments at the VSA competition. We certainly hope it will not be the last.

Congratulations to Haide and Artur!
