In 2000, the magnificent violin studio Ulf opened in the heart of Copenhagen. Ulf Eriksson says:

Yann likes to visit Ulf several times a year, as this allows him to look after the violins and violas he has sold in Scandinavia. He believes it’s really important to take time to adjust or change sound posts and bridges, as this is crucial to the sound production of his instruments.
