Some Words From Andy Fein, Violin and Bow Maker at Fein Violins
Thanks for visiting our online shop. As we approach 1 million visitors, I want to thank everyone who has made our web site a premier destination for Fine Violins, Fine Violas, Fine Cellos, Fine Pernambuco Bows, and Fine Wood Music Stands. I have been the owner and violin maker here since I started the business in 1982. I have worked and trained with some of the finest makers and restorers all over the world. Before that, I served my apprenticeship at the Chicago School of Violin Making, studied instrument and bow identification with Kenneth Warren, Sr., and completed a B.A. in Music from Wesleyan University in Connecticut. I have continued to study instruments and bows at the National Music Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Museum, the Ashmolean Museum, with master violin maker Amnon Weinstein in Tel Aviv, and with colleagues and conservators around the world.
Despite the activity on our site and in our shop, we are still a small business with a personal approach to every instrument. Every instrument that goes through our shop is set up and finished by myself. Every instrument from our shop is played by a professional musician, and then checked and adjusted for tone quality. We ship them to you adjusted to your taste, set up and ready to play as soon as you open the case.
I hope you enjoy browsing our website. If you have any questions, please contact me or call me (651-228-0783 or 800-347-9172). I'd be happy to help you! I'm proud of my shop and the service our staff of professional string players and teachers is dedicated to giving our clients.
Friend us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, read our instrument reviews. You will soon learn that our clients are not just customers. We're interested in supporting your musical life every step of the way. We love what we do!
