"I have never enjoyed playing on a modern violin as much as the violin made by Yael Rosenblum. Everyone who has heard it agrees that it is a joyful surprise. I played it for Maestro Zubin Mehta, who continues to be very impressed by the quality and richness of the sound. The ease and comfort of producing a good sound on Yael Rosenblum’s violin is similar to what I feel when I am playing on the orchestra’s Stradivarius violin. Her violin is unlike other modern instruments I have seen. The “old Italian” sound is not only a pleasure to listen to but also the beauty of the instrument is a delight to see.”

“I own a violin made by Yael Rosenblum and i am very satisfied with the result of the sound, a good compromise between quality and depth. The sound is, in fact, very sweet and uniform on all 4 strings and it possesses a roundness that permits the optimum projection even in halls with more difficult acoustics. This young violin-maker who works in Cremona has already achieved the best results and leaves a good hope for the future of violin-making in Italy. “

“…playing a Yael Rosenblum viola, I find that the quality of sound and power of these instruments is outstanding indeed. The response of the instruments and the evenness of all four strings makes the playing very enjoyable and satisfying. Such an impressive “start” of a young violin maker who works in Cremona is to my opinion highly promising”

“I own two violins made by Yael Rosenblum, built from two different models. Both, with a diversity of character, show the quality of all Yael Rosenblum instruments which I have had the occasion to try – a warm, prompt and rich sound. They are very comfortable to play on and permit a brilliantly professional use immediately. The exponential improvement they show by being played on guarantees that Yael Rosenblum is one of the best violin makers of her generation.”

“I was quite astonished to see, listen to and play the violins made by Yael Rosenblum. The strength, the depth of sound and the beauty were out of the common. Of course also in comparison with other violins.”
