Violin and Cello purchase

I have heard that they sell some high quality string instruments in China. It is easy to get the low end instruments in the US. Does anyone know of a place in Beijing or Shanghai to get top quality instruments?

You might try posting your question in chinese-forums.com There are many expatriates on that forum who live in Beijing. I will also ask around for you and try to post something again within a week. I know a few people in Beijing, but none are professional musicians. Also phone up Ifshin in Berkeley. Maybe they have some ideas. Some of their luthiers maybe Chinese and have even better ideas.

There's an annual music instrument fair in Shanghai which's usually held sometime in October, and at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) near Longyang Lu metro stop in Pudong.
