“I first met Mark Wood at the Greenwood Music Camp when I was just 15 years old. From that point on, my life changed. Mark came in with a variety of electric violins, his main feature being the viper. As soon as I tried it on, I was hooked. My neck and shoulders began to relax, and all of a sudden I had freedom. The removal of a chinrest as part of the violin is both unique and brilliant giving the player the ability to actually move while playing. Dancing has always been a large part of my life and for the first time I could actually bring that into my playing! The Viper has changed my approach to violin playing and I could not live without it!”
