Certainly Chinese and Certainly Cheap because a better brand would take at the very least the pride to stamp or engrave (or laser which is the case) their full name if they had one.
With so many good players (even among the Chinese production) I would not risk (unless it was cheap as inexpensive fried potatoes) more than €100 in buying one knowing that I most probably would sell it.
I did buy once a cheap Chinese curved soprano to feel if I liked to play a curved soprano. When I tried it it also didn’t play badly but it wasn’t worth even having it adjusted. So I sold it and bought myself a NEW Chinese made Bauhaus Walstein which I still highly recommend over a no name Chinese curvy.
