I am Assistant Concertmaster of The Omaha Symphony (USA), and the happy onwer of one early instruments (2000).
I have a teenage daugheter who will be needing a fine violin of her own soon. I was planning on giving her my 2000 Mazzotti, wich I bought to use as a 2 nd instrument, but it has really matured into a beautiful souding fine instrument that is easy to play. I really am loathe to give it up, so I want to see if we could have two of your violins in the family. Is there a waiting list?

Wonderful New Violin – lunedì 3 ottobre 2011
I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I am enjoying my new violin! It has really made my life as a professional violinist easier. The violin has a sweet but powerful resonance that makes it gratifying to play almost anywhere… outside quartet jobs, loud receptions, full symphonic fortissimo passages, I can always hear its tone and work to make beautiful music. I am even happier with it when playing in a good space. There is a sunny but rich quality to all of your violins I have heard that makes them fun to play in any musical style. My newest Mazzotti is richly blessed with that virtue.
**One of my colleagues has been shopping for a new instrument in the $50K – $70K price range and I have been able to hear some of his favorite choices along-side of my Mazzotti instruments. We did our comparisons in large spaces so we could really evaluate the fully developed tone of all the instruments. I was delighted with how well the tonal qualities of your violins matched, and often surpassed almost all of the more expensive instruments! *

I tuned the violin up to pitch and played for hours, every piece that came into my head, from the last thirty year; notes I didn’t think that I still knew. It was an amazing experience. I will love exploring this instrument’s possibilities.Thank you so much,
[Frank Seligman – (Violinist of The Omaha Symphony – USA)]
> The violin is here. My first impressions are superb. Visually very attractive especially the back. The sound is much much better than I could ever have wished for. Quite outstanding. The G D and A strings are wonderful – especially the D. Until now, I have been playing an good Ceruti (dated Circa 1790 ) and your newly created violin has a much better tone with a faster, more precise and clear response. … It is already showing me how it likes to be played to bring out the best tone (that is impressive) I am so excited by its potential. I think it will be an exceptionally good instrument with a top quality sound and tone. I cannot wait to hear the improvement in six months time.
You are a very talanted young man and I am quite certain that you will become an international luthier with an immense reputation. I can’t thank the gods enough when they directed me to your website.
With many many thanks
[Jim Williamson- Chamber Violinist (France)]
I played the violin for four hours today and I love it. It is really very very comfortable – you did an amazing job! The sound is opening up well – I changed the E for a gold Evah and like it very much that way. Sei fantastico. Grazie mille.

(Michael Papai- Dealer- Austria) [www.violinsandmore.at]
“Dear Mr.Mazzotti, GreatMorning!!! I hope you are and all is good with you. So, I have been playng the strings off the violin. Yes it is sounding better and better every 10 minutes or so. It is opening up, quite the turn around from the firts impressions I had. I have aldready gotten many compliments on the looks so far. Even a few of my heart for putting all of yours into this fine, fine work. Spendid! The tone is warming up to be deep, rich and resonant. It is suprisingly even across all the strings, even in extreme high positions. The G strings is lush and powerful and has a nice cream like tone. All the strings are very creamy and rich. I will say that this violin may even surpass my firts. I can only imagine how this violin will sound in a few months of regular play. The papers are very nice, very impressive . After I have played it in a bit more I will tour this one to the interested shop owners and I am sure that they will be very interested. Again I want to thank you for sharing with me the awesome purity and might of your artristy.You are truly an amazing man. To make something so fine out a few pieces of wood is a miracle. I will covet and treasure this as long as I live. Thank you so,so much Mr. Mazzotti.
(William C. Buirge -Violinist-Minnesota-USA)
