Zhu Hua Jie made this strongly-modelled violn, with its bold edges and beautifully flamed maple back, in 1994, two years after winning a silver medal for tone at the 1992 Violin Society of America International Competition in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The tone of this instrument is strong, brilliant, and would suit an experienced player. The pegs, tailpiece, and endpin are elaborately carved from genuine boxwood.
