"I first began playing Epoch violins when I was 12-years-old.
As a member of the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra at the time, I also travelled and performed with my family band The Bostocks every weekend.
For me, Epoch was a perfect fit, as I was able to have an instrument that performed well in both settings. I have played a few Epochs over the years, with my favourite and primary instrument being the VP4 carbon fibre.
It is an incredibly durable instrument, which I am very comfortable travelling with.
I have been all over the country with it, by car and plane and have never had a probem with it. I also find the tuning holds up remarkably.
The thing I love most about Epoch violins is their ability to cut through when playing live with a band.
A lot of violins tend to get lost in the mix, but Epoch holds its own.
This is vital for me, as a lot of The Bostocks music centres on lead guaitar and violin duel solos, so I know I'm not going to be drowned out by the guitar.
I would recommend Epoch violins to any touring artist who is looking for a reliable, durable and great sounding instrument."
