The Violin and Fiddle Shop proudly serves the student violinist as well as the folk and traditional fiddling community.  Although violin makers, we do not carry fine violins, but rather affordable, quality instruments for the beginning to advanced level student violinist or fiddler who is in the early stage of their music career or who are "just testing the water". The Violin and Fiddle shop violin sales range between $550 and $8000
