We invite you to visit our store where you will find a large selection of violins, violas, cellos, basses, their bows, and accessories. Our staff will provide you with personal attention answering your questions about products and service, assisting you with comparing instruments and accessories, and showing you our facilities.

Financing available for instrument purchases.

We have our own workshops where all of our 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.

Hammond Ashley Violins can provide high quality instruments for your school program as well. We have our own lines of instruments that are all personally selected for quality and tone and include excellent warranties with all set up and maintenance done in our facility. You can be sure that you are selecting Legacy instruments that will hold up to the rigors of the school environment for decades.

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.
