About us

Mission Statement

To provide fine instruments, personalized service, and exceptional musical experiences from our family to yours.

Welcome to Classic Violins, a family owned and operated business specializing in fine instruments and exceptional experiences. “Quality and Tradition” is more than just a tag line; they are tenets central to our business.


Quality is the foundation of all that we do. We strive to offer a diverse selection of fine instruments made right here in our own workshop, and representing luthiers around the world. A great musical experience starts with a great instrument, and we are proud to offer instruments for all skill levels and budgets. Every instrument we offer, from the smallest 1/32 size violin to the largest ¾ double bass, is meticulously set up and adjusted in-house by our skilled luthiers.


Providing a fine musical instrument itself is not enough; an investment must be protected and maintained. We offer complete and comprehensive repair and restoration services, and will work with you to create an individualized plan to maintain your instrument, or restore a cherished family heirloom. Our luthiers can also work with you to make fine adjustments to your instrument to help you achieve (and maintain) your signature musical voice.


In an art traditionally surrounded by secrets, we strive to help you make sense of it all. Learning an instrument is an exciting journey, and we’ll help you navigate the ins and outs of your instrument and how it works. When a player understands how their instrument produces sound and how variable changes can affect it, they are better suited to make music confidently. We offer not only music lessons, but educational experiences and lectures for studios, small groups, and schools.


Founded in 1989, Classic Violins began as a small family operation. Although we have grown to three locations in two states, to this day we remain a close and tight-knit business, thriving on individual connections and personalized service. When we serve you, we strive to provide the same care and warmth we would want for our own family.
