I had a wonderful experience at the Long Island Violin Shop today. I went with my son to buy a new violin for him. He is a ninth grade fairly accomplished violin player. Carol was very helpful. He tried numerous violins and finally wound up buying one that he loved. They are very accommodating, and very helpful. We went to the Huntington location because of the number of violins to select from. They have high-quality instruments, bows and everything you need for your violin. They also do excellent repair work, which we have had done in the past on my sons older violin.
