Fiddle / Violin

Bowed strings may baffle players more than any other kind of instrument.  Instruments that look essentially the same may sound like a dying rabbit and cost $100 or may bring goosebumps to the listener and fill a concert hall - and cost $5,000,000.  We find that careful selection and set up [link], along with our acoustic blueprinting, allows performance to track cost.  We attempt to offer a careful selection of suitable instruments from our suppliers and from our own shop.  These have proven to offer the best performance per dollar on a consistent basis.  Of course, we cannot stock every instrument available from our suppliers, but can provide quotes on other instruments.
