1. This is just a quick, heartfelt thank you for the wonderful service you provided in not only producing a spectacular professional Pontic Lyra, but for shipping my order safely and successfully with no damage. The quality of your work is indeed magnificent and your price is very reasonable. Frankly, at first, I was skeptical about purchasing a Lyra from someone I did not know. You have been straight forward with me from day one. Your integrity and business ethics are indeed refreshing, in these days of declining productivity. I appreciated your e-mails and photographs you produced to establish my concerns about the Lyra and its delivery. I will certainly never forget your service and will recommend you to anybody who is seeking to purchase a Pontic Lyra. Keep up the great work! Steve - Fairfax, Virginia USA
2. Buying my kemence from the Violineri was a very pleasant experience. The attention to detail concerning materials, sound quality, and custom options was of a level rarely found in this day and age. After intense dialog the resulting kemence is exceptional and I know I will enjoy playing for many years to come.Alexander - Holland
3. I just received my beautiful lyra from Pontos World and am truly blown away by the craftsmanship and quality. The luthier was incredibly helpful and informative every step of the way and made sure everything was perfectly adjusted before shipping and kept me up with the process all the way to the end. I give him my highest recommendation. If you are interested in the best Pontic Lyra available, this is the right place. Gary Haggerty (of the group Stellamara) San Francisco, California, US
4. For a long time I have been thinking about buying Pontian lyra. In fact I was planning trip to Greece for buying one. I saw The Violineri at PontosWorld and I got in contact with Aris. After several e-mails I was happy to meet such a person. He sent photos and video links of lyras, gave information about instrument. He was quite honest and helpful that I decided to buy. When I talked with people about buying lyra from Australia they were skeptical. My personal expectations about the lyra was low too.
I had some concerns about shipment but Aris explained me that he had shipped several lyras without any damage. Then I made the payment via Paypal. When I received photos of the package I saw that it is almost impossible to give damage to lyra.
When I received the lyra, I was astonished. It's not an ordinary instrument and I was not expecting such a fine instrument. Craftsmanship and quality of wood are spectacular. I really liked the sound. It was quite what I was looking for. I was very impressed with the bow too. The price was very reasonable for such quality. This lyra will be played with pleasure for years. I will buy 2nd lyra soon.
Ευχαριστώ για όλα. Kaan. Istanbul, Turkey.
Uzun zamandır Rum kemençesi almak istiyordum. Hatta bunun için Yunanistana gidecektim. The Violineriye PontosWorldde gördüm ve Arisle iletişime geçtim. Birkaç mailden sonra Arisle tanıştığıma çok memnun oldum. Kemençenin fotoğraflarını ve video linklerini gönderip enstrüman hakkında bilgi verdi. Oldukça dürüst ve yardımcı olduğu için almaya karar verdim. Avustralyadan kemençe alacağımı söylediğimde insanlar biraz garipsedi. Aslında benimde kemençe hakkındaki bekletilerim çok düşüktü.
Nakliyele ilgili bazı endişelerim vardı fakat Aris bana birkaç kemençeyi hasarsız gönderdiğini söyledi. Paypal ile ödemeyi yaptım. Paketin fotoğraflarını görünce ürünün yolda zedelenemeyeceğini anladım.
Kemençeyi elime geçince çok şaşırdım. Sıradan bir enstrüman değildi ve bu kadar kaliteli birşey beklemiyordum. İşçilik ve agacın kalitesi harika. Tonunu çok sevdim. Yay da en az kemençe kadar kaliteli ve rahat. Bu kemençe için istenen fiyat oldukça uygun. Kemençe uzun yıllar keyifle çalınacak.
