"This fiddle is a very fine Anders C. Kleven fiddle, that I have owned for many years.
Though it was well set up when I got it, I have never been quite happy with the way it
sounded. It is only now after David Golber set it up for me again that I think it has really
begun to sound the way I think it should."
Toby Weinberg, one of the best American Hardanger fiddle players, beginning a concert
at the 2004 annual meeting of the Hardanger Fiddle Association of America meeting .
I am one of a very few luthiers on this side of the Atlantic with extensive
experience with Hardanger fiddles. I have been involved with these
instruments for 20 years, and have spent many hours with top players and
makers in Norway. I speak and read Norwegian.
A Hardanger fiddle from me, whether new or repaired, will be properly and
professionally set up, according to current Norwegian playing practice.
