Jon’s instruments can be fitted with an optional identification system featuring an internet registry and recovery services. The RFID is a microchip based system that does not affect the tonal properties of the instrument. It can be discretely mounted in the instrument and is undetectable, yet still allows the violin to be identified. We can also retrofit the RFID to any instrument. Heritage Insurance Services, Inc., as well as other leading musical instrument carriers offer a discount to members with this system installed.
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.
