Hello! It’s been a while since the last time I post something here.. And I’m glad I can finally get back again to my blog.
So for today’s post, I want to share my achievement which is also my very first experience after 16 years of being a violinist. Quite a long story tho, but it’s worth it. On January 2016, I was performing in an event at Batik Lounge, Kemang, Jakarta. There, I met a guy who was looking for someone for a Hofner violin endorsement.
Long story short. After a few months, a representative from the company he worked for called me and asked me to come over to Jakarta (I live in Bandung, btw). We arranged the schedule and then the next 6 days, I went to the place he asked me to go to. There, he and his colleagues told me to try a few famous German violins from Hofner. I AM INSTANTLY SO IN LOVE WITH THOSE VIOLINS especially for the H4-V4 series.
And just when I thought it ends there, they gave me a chance to try an electric violin which is also from Hofner. For your information, I have never play an electric violin before because I wanted to stay “classic”. It felt heavy at first, I tried it before it was plugged to the sound system and it sounds not to bad. But after it was plugged, I had to say its hard to go back the classic violin again wink
Anyway, here I am now. Officially endorsed and happily exploring my 2 new violins, accoustic violin and electric violin, both by Hofner. Oh i’m also endorsed for violin string from D’addario KAPLAN VIVO. For those who are looking for a violin string, KAPLAN VIVO is highly recommended. Those warm but soft tone will drive you crazy!
A little bit tips of buying a new violin, probably I’ve said this before but I will say it again. It is never you who choose the instrument, the instrument is.
Goodluck finding a new one or if you love your old one already, take a good care of it!
