Welcome to the best shop in Orange County for string instruments of the Violin family. Our family has owned our shop for over 40 years, and the services we provide are the highest quality at competitive price. We offer superior rentals or can help match players to purchase the most suitable instrument. We offer teacher referrals, and a very good selection of violins for sale. There is a bulletin board in the foyer posted with local events and you will find many of our violins hanging from the ceiling, ready to try.



You can, of course, try different instruments or bows in a private room at our shop as well. If necessary, we encourage you to take one home for a few days for further trial. We do our best to make our customers feel comfortable and at home. From beginning students to professional musicians, we welcome and encourage those of any skill level. Visit our shop and get to know us -- we strive to help musicians get the best from their equipment.
