Guarneri House is an amazing place to purchase a violin. I received exceptional customer service. Everyone was very knowledgeable and provided me with a wealth of information to help with my purchase. I highly recommend Guarneri House for quality and value.

-Joe Steffes

Even though we only needed a tiny little part for my son’s cello bow (total=$5.75), we were treated like valued customers. The lady working there was very nice to my son who has autism and even gave him a little cloth to clean his cello. The man doing the repairs was helpful with finding the correct part. My husband is a cellist and has had work done by them before, too, and has always been pleased.

-Laura Muresan

Excellent service, quality instruments, and knowledgeable staff. We’ve been renting with Aaron’s Instruments for several years and couldn’t be happier. Highly recommended company!
