One of the BEST violin shops in the country!!
Violin Outlet is unique. From the very first day it opened it reflected the integrity of its owner, Mara Lieberman, her love for music, and her caring attitude about children. The employees also reflect these qualities. Many times I felt guilty that I did not pay enough for their products. Mara tries to get the highest quality into students’ hands. It is one of the few stores left where you can pull music off the shelves and try it before buying it. I can never say enough about Mara and her crew.
My experience with Violin Outlet is a positive one. When my son’s school had their little “rental fair,” there were several businesses present to offer their services. The school cafeteria was crowded with fancy displays of intimidating instruments and pushy staff. Violin Outlet was not that way at all. Their staff was very approachable, knowledgeable, and overall helpful.
They have continued to be friendly throughout my business relationship (renting their equipment) and have met all of my son’s needs.
I bought my violin here more than ten years ago and have made several visits since. The shop is small but cozy, the large amount of music books gives the place an atmosphere reminiscent to a library’s. The staff are always friendly, very accommodating, and seem to genuinely care for the instruments that come through the door. It is always a pleasure to walk in and a comfort to know my old friend will be well cared for.
