Violin

If you are new to band instruments, we have some great knowledge on what to look out for when buying a violin! If you don't find what you are looking for on our site, please give us a call at (210-224-1010) Downtown or (210-525-1010) Babcock so that we can answer any questions you may have! 

For us to serve you better, please consult your band director on the

preferred instrument so that we can get you the perfect instrument to satisfy everyone! 

First: New, Used, or Rent? We offer all three choices. New is more reliable, sounds great, just costs a little more. Used is perfect for anyone starting out. Rent is also good for those who are not sure what instrument they would like to play. I am pleased to say that we offer all three choices.

Second:  When Purchasing your very first instrument or one for your child, the most important thing is that it is the correct size.  Next is that it's set up well and is easy to play. Pegs must be cut correctly or they will not hold well.
