First Violin Purchase

Purchasing a new violin (or any quality string instrument) is an important investment that can be exciting yet pricey and challenging. In my case, I was a bit nervous because this was my first such purchase. From my several phone calls to today's visit to Violin Shop Tampa, I felt like everyone was dedicated to my needs and happiness. They listened attentively and worked hard to help me in every way. I learned that each team member is formally educated and quite experienced, including a number of professional, working musicians. I was in excellent hands.

First Impressions

We stopped here to see about getting an upgraded violin for my son going into HS orchestra. First impressions are valuable and we were impressed! The shop itself is like a European violin shop - it has that small, warm, well kept old world vibe. It belongs on a small, off the main path cobbled street with a coffee shop next door. It even has its own workshop for working on instruments.
