The violin that I have just purchased from Luiz is without question the best copy of a Guarneri “del Gesù” that I have put under my chin. It is responsive, big and beautiful sounding all in one. As you probably know, I used to play on the original Sainton “del Gesù” and it is no less commanding. In fact, the varnish is even more beautiful than the original.

When I met the Amorim family for the first time in Cremona I felt a big trust from the start. They helped me to find my top level instrument with patience and professionalism. I appreciate the close collaboration which I can only recommend especially for those who are in the middle of the process to find their own Instrument. I bought a wonderful violin by Matteo Goffriller in the Amorim Workshop in Cremona.

Julian Fahrner, Concertmaster, Germany

The instrument (Luiz Amorim copy of Montagnana) not only brings a lot of warmth, but also bass support and clarity to the sound. It gives some kind of personal singing voice to the music and is something special to work with. I feel that it is the perfect mix of the shape and appearance of the original cello, which is made very much like the original with the beautiful red/brown varnish. If you look at the back, you can see the three-dimensional qualities in the structure of the wood and the varnish, and I think that’s really appealing.

Daniel Müller-Schott, Cellist, Germany

Had a truly wonderful experience. Amorim Fine Violins is a great place to visit if you need to find a new instrument, to fix your own, or to get any advice regarding string instruments. The people working there are super kind, welcoming, and professional. Highly recommended!

Justina Auškelytė Rossi, Violinist, Lithuania

When I play, my cello by Luiz Amorim, what happens is that I almost forget that I am playing a modern instrument. The deep sound of the basses of this instrument is really very unique and this reminds me of some of the great cellos that I have tried before in my life, Strad, Montagnana, and a few other ones. It has so many of the qualities that you expect from an instrument that is 300 years old or more.

Antonio Meneses, Cellist, Brazil

Sara Pastine, Violinist, Italy

Having acquired Luiz Amorim’s newest 1744 “Sainton” Del Gesù violin, I can wholeheartedly state that he is the finest living violin maker. His instruments are works of art, in addition to being top rate concert violins. Bravissimo Luiz on yet another monumental achievement!!

Sean Avram Carpenter Violinist, USA

I confess that I was very excited when I met Luiz Amorim’s cello. Easy to play, it has a homogeneous sound on all strings and I did not check for problems like wolves. The cello has a beautiful sound that resembles Italian instruments of sec. XVIII, I confess that I have never seen a new instrument that has this quality.

Roberto Ring, Cellist, Brazil

Throughout this year, I played concerts, sonatas, and quartets with my new violin, always with great pleasure and having a wonderful sound response. I recorded a CD that will show all this, but I wanted, before any proof, to record my words of great admiration for your work. You are a true artist, and you are serving music more than you ever imagined. Me and your violin we’ll do together, a lot of music. Congratulations on your art.

Emmanuele Baldini, Concertmaster and Conductor, Italy
