"Graham Caldersmith's #101 violin has an impressive sound. The sound is warm, clear and projects extremely well. I've been performing on the instrument for 10 years, since winning the Kendall National Violin Competition in 2006. I have been so satisfied with the instrument, that I haven't felt the need to spend lots of money buying an older instrument. Thank you Graham, for making this beautiful violin which I continue to play each day."

"My Caldersmith viola is the most beautiful instrument that I have seen and quite honestly the best instrument I have ever played.  Graham's use of Australia wood, inlays and artistry has to be seen to be believed.  I find my viola has exceptional projection, clarity, character and playability.  Far more so than any other instrument I have owned.  Graham is also a tremendously honest and brilliant man with immense integrity.  I find as much pleasure in playing my viola as I do knowing that it was made by him".
