Jason Perri , violinist
Vibrato-AE Violin (BAR-AE)
Quote: "When I was sixteen, the first live pickup I ever owned was a Barcus-Berry, and I loved it because I sounded LOUD. Years later, I'm playing Barcus-Berry violins, and they are such a musically and visually appealing instrument. People often hear with their eyes first and then listen to the tone, and my Barcus-Berry violins have already captured the audience's attention on many occasions. It's my pleasure to be playing Barcus-Berry violins."
