"Dear Rafael,

When you mentioned the old term/definition of Queen Anne Hill, counterbalance, you reminded me that I have never fully expressed my gratitude to you, your superb expertise and that of your team of craftsmen, including your educated staff.

Carrabba Violins continues to be the hub and counterbalance of luthiers from the Pacific Coast to the East Coast of the United States. And beyond.

I am 90 and still playing cello - now exclusively string quartet.  Thanks to you, my cello sings.  I love it, and my two string quartet, players love it.

Rafael, you have exceeded professional, ethical and human expectations.  Your volcanic simmer of intent listening, and adjusting, until your remarkable and demanding "ear" is rewarded with a round richness of tone in every register, cannot be duplicated.

Knowing you, your ability to work with many of us, amateur to professional, has given me (and my cello) a satisfaction and trust   I  cannot duplicate.

A thousand thanks, Rafael Carrabba

Sincerely,

Frances Walton"
