All our instruments and bows are sold with an inclusive guarantee and a trade-up policy of up to 100% of the purchase price. All accessories in stock are sold at competitive prices - you show us a competitor's price, we match it. We special order any accessories needed.

All repairs and restorations are performed in our shop by Constantin Popescu. No work is sent out to subcontractors. You can come and watch Constantin working on your instrument. Any major restorations (which require the removal of the top and or neck) undertaken in our work-shop are guaranteed for as long as you own the instrument.

All work is performed by Constantin using only the highest quality horse hair and replacement parts.

Our shop is always seeking quality violin family instruments and bows. If you have an instrument or bow you wish to sell, you have two options; to trade it in for one of our instruments or to sell it directly to us for immediate cash.

We accept instruments and bows in consignment. All repairs must be performed and paid before we can present the item to the potential buyers. Our commission is 30% of the selling price.

Our program is designed with students of all ages and levels in mind. All our rental instruments are of highest quality, European made, the same instruments that we have in our sales inventory. Each instrument is expertly adjusted and in top playing condition. Additional adjustments are provided free of charge. Our rental to purchase program offers the option to apply the rental fee towards the purchase of any of our instruments in accordance with our sliding schedule. A 10% discount off the initial price will be applied if the rental instrument is purchased within the first 3 months of the rental period. We offer trade up from size to size at any time.

An appraisal is a document that gives a description of the instrument or bow, and gives an expert's opinion of its fair replacement value. These documents are accepted by insurance companies as evidence of value but not as proof of ownership. Instruments are appraised for a flat fee, and never for a percentage of the value of the instruments. Our fee is $100 for a verbal appraisal, $250 for a written document. Updates are $100. $50 to reissue an existing document. Appraisals are provided gratis whenever an instrument is purchased in our store.
