Made by a Russian violamaker in Beijing. (Russian Spruce and Maple) (highly recommended for tone, dynamics, expression and volume for soloists) 

Russian violamaking has a long history, earlier that even many European countries. Guarneri’s violins often have a darker, more robust, more sonorous tone than Stradivari’s. Russian spruce and maple have been used to achieve this. The tone on this violin is just exceptional, having a powerful, rich, clear tone. The craftmanship is excellent in every way.
