We also have everything needed to service your instrument, and offer an onsite instrument repair service.
Some of our current stock (new and used) is listed on our used & vintage page.
What is the difference between a fiddle and a violin?
None - a fiddle is a violin! Some fiddlers sand down the bridge to ease the play, but a fiddle and a violin are the same instrument.
For fiddles, what size should I buy for what age?
One rule of thumb is 1/8 for 3-4 year olds, 1/4 for 5-6 year olds, and 1/2 for 7-8 year olds. But the real rule is rule of arm: if at all possible, you'll want to size the instrument to the individual child. Palatino offers a reasonably priced violin for students in the growing period.
Where can I find a violin teacher?
