We sell student through intermediate level of violins, violas, cellos, and double basses made in China, Romania, and Germany. We also sell a variety of bows, carryng bags, cases, strings, and a complete line of accessories for these instruments. The violins come in many different finishes including reddish brown, light brown, medium brown and dark brown. Some instruments have different shading accents. Violins are available in sizes 1/16 through 4/4 and violas from 12” Through 16.5”
We offer several options on the type of bridges, strings, bows, tail pieces etc. Our instruments come shop adjusted making it easier to play and learn without the usual problems that you have with instruments that are resold from the suppliers unadjusted.
Most of the violins that students brought with them when they take lessons at my studio are poorly setup. These instruments were hard to tune, and keep in tune, in addition to other problems. I generally have to use some time during the first two lessons to correct some of these problems otherwise we would not be able to use the instrument for our lessons.
Many music stores sell an instrument the way that they received it, in the case with loose strings and without the bridge installed. Many other music shops just take the instrument they received from the supplier, install the bridge that came with it, tune it and sell it to the customer.
Instrument Set up is important
Setting up and shop adjusting an instrument is an important step for a player. Our instruments come adjusted for good fitting tuning pegs, bridges, sound posts, action of strings and other adjustments.
The action should be set so that pressing down the strings to play notes are not too hard but not too low that notes can buzz. The more expensive instruments come with a professional set up that we spend more time on, and we fine tune an instrument even more to enhance the sound etc.
Our violins are shown on an appointment basis so the customer can work with a person that is very knowledgeable about the instrument. This also gives the customer more personal time with less or no uninterrupted attention.
