“Meeting Mark Wood and getting my hands on a Viper changed my career and my life. I can do things I never dreamed of as a young player and the possibilities still remain unlimited. I still love my acoustic violin , but my Viper has allowed me to find my true voice…It challenges and inspires me as an artist every time I pick it up and I couldn’t be any more grateful. Mark Wood is a mentor and inspiration to me and everyone at Wood Violins has become family. You truly get so much more than just an instrument from Wood Violins!!”
