"When I first started playing my new Gwyneth Wilbur violin, I hit a range of notes where the instrument truly sang and I said to myself, 'Ah, now there's the sweet spot,' I began to notice that every time I'd pick it up, I'd say the same thing about a different range of notes, until I realized that the whole instrument consists of on great big sweet spot. What a beautiful fiddle!"
