Testimonials praising McCaigue's Instruments
The workmanship of Dennis McCaique's violin is absolutely
exquisite, it has such attractive look and playability. The
tone and power is at first rate for a solo instrument, I highly
recommend Mr. McCaique's instrument!

To Mr. Richard Gagliardi
Recently, while at the shop of Mr. Gagliardi, I was fortunate
to play two violins made by Dennis McCaigue. One was a copy
of the "Arditti" Strad and the other a copy of a Guanerius
del Gesu. I was, quite frankly, overwhelmed by the quality
of these instruments. They had power and depth of tone found
only in the best of instruments. Furthermore, the thing that
really astounded me was that the "Strad" had all the qualities
of a Strad- and the del Gesu all the qualities of a del Gesu!!!
I was so impressed by these instruments that I recommended
the Strad copy to my best student-and he bought it! May I
say in my career, I have played many of the finest instruments
and I think Mr. McCaigue belongs amoung the highest eshelon
of violin makers both present and past, and I look foward
with great excitement to owning a McCaigue myself!!
