"I came away from my computer to find out what instrument [was being played], as it was vibrating the walls of the building - it's one of our new Soloists! They sound amazing!" -Todd French during an Evan play-test
"You know I had no doubts that you were a reputable company, but the big risk was to buy my Soloist cello sound unheard. I felt nervous because I wasn't even sure I knew what you meant when you described "bright", "dark" "open" "clean". The most astonishing thing is how you managed to get me a perfect match. Apart from your absolutely wonderful customer service - I've never experienced anything like it in all my life -your ability to match a client with a cello is uncanny. She's so much better than anything I tried out here. My teacher came and played it and she said exactly what you said about it : open, clean sound, balanced over the strings, easy to play. She also says it has lots of colors. She's says it's got a strong voice but not overwhelming THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!." - K.V.
