The NewStrad team not only have 30 years of experience in the field of psychoacoustics at their disposal. Due to their extensive data ressources and a wide variety of representative surveys based on listening tests and sound analysis, they are able to contribute important facts and criteria when it comes to deciding on a certain instrument.

In joint actions with the most experienced violin makers of Europe, a great number of tests and analytical quality assessments were performed aimed at analyzing the parameters that determine a violin's individual sound. By combining our method of refinement, established in many years of reserach, with the talents of selected master workshops, instruments with an extremely rich variety of timbres, modulation capabilities and subtle nuances of expression can be created.
