DAVID CARON CELLOS in The Pegbox Posted October 23, 2019 · Report reply For me it is his cellos that really set him apart. I have played several of his violas and violins and the contemporary instruments I own, by relatively unknown makers are considerably better (not just my opinion.) I also find his violas physically difficult to play, heavy with a thick neck. I know one professional who had to replace his Caron viola because of physical problems caused by the instrument. But still, his cellos are etherial.
