Discounts: A 25% discount on a case and/or a bow is offered with the purchase of an instrument.

As a final note regarding instrument and bow sales, I do not give teacher commissions. This practice is too widespread in the violin trade. The advice and assisstance of the teacher is very important in most string purchases and fortunately, most of the teachers neither expect or demand a “secret payment” from the violin shop. The shops that offer such payments must pad the prices of the instruments to compensate. Again, I do not involve myself with this practice.
