In our workshops, instruments are professionally set up and adjusted to play easily and sound their best. Every instrument and bow has been handpicked, setup, and then tested for playability and sound by us. Our workshops are able to provide on-site adjustment, service, and warranty to the instruments we sell and rent. We provide the best customer service in the business, which is why most of our business comes from referrals by satisfied private teachers and their students.

How to Choose an Instrument - Which is Best, New or Old?

Let us help you. We have a passion for finding the best fit for each of our clients. Because of our large inventory, you can select several instruments within your price range and compare them. Our store provides a relaxed and comfortable setting for you to audition your selections.

Instruments can be compared in our store and taken home when you find what you are looking for, taken out on an approval period without commitment to purchase. This allows you to evaluate the instrument in your home and to obtain the opinion of colleagues or your private instructor.
