In my opinion, Jon Cooper is THE premier violin maker in the country right now.  I’ve been playing my Cooper for a little over three years now, and I have to say, this violin never ceases to amaze me.  It is one of the best violins I have ever heard or played, and it’s barely four years old!  Jon is truly one of the greatest luthiers on the planet, and on top of all that, he’s a true gentleman.  I’m proud to play a Cooper.
