“James McKean’s stringed instruments are a reflection of his great talent, his ability to listen to the needs of the artists he creates for and his impeccable integrity. I have owned one of his gorgeous violins for almost twenty years and have played it often in concerts. A great artist, McKean is truly a “master” violin maker.”
