Review for Restored 1960 German cello
Amazing cello and restoration!

As a cellist and cello instructor of 30+ students I am always on the look out for great instruments. I have been so pleased with the cello I recently bought for my 14 year old daughter from Dave & Juan. It is a beautiful German restored cello from the 1960s and has an amazing bright sound and projects a big full sound without much effort. It also looks gorgeous. He gave us a great price too. It was by far the best cello I could find in 3 states for the $3600 price I paid. I also recommend Dave & Juan to all my students for their cellos and have had many just as pleased as I have been. They are also is quick to make repairs and do a high quality job with set up issues of their instruments. I completely trust their work and their products.

Review for A Violin teacher
Dave's violins

I have known Dave for many years, first as a violin instructor for his two daughters. In my opinion, his violins are of high quality suited for students as well as for professional violinists. He is skilled on how to set up violins and to do tone adjustments, several of my students have acquired his instruments and are very happy with them due to their tone quality and set ups which were done with professionalism and meticulous care. I recommend his instruments for the most serious musicians.

Review for Violin
Dave's Violin's

I have two children who have played the violin since they were young. Having no musical ability myself, I had no idea what a difference the violin made in my children’s ability to play, and the quality of the sound that they were able to achieve. Having a good violin makes all the difference. Before finding Dave I was left to the mercy of what to do, buy a new violin? Purchase a used violin that I knew nothing about? Dave let my kids try his violins and pick out which one was their favorite. Each instrument has a unique personality, tone and richness of sound. They were able to choose what they liked best. Each of these instruments are used but of excellent quality and Dave has refurbish them and made them like new but they have character and their own story which Dave will happily tell you about. Dave has made getting a nice violin for my children not only affordable but I know they have a quality instrument that they can excel with and they sound beautiful! I am very grateful to Dave for this, and happily tell everyone I know who is in the market for a quality instrument about him. Dave is honest, fair and delightful to work with.

Review for Violin
Dave's violins

I have bought three violins from Dave for my daughters and for myself . Dave’s violins not only look beautiful but sound beautiful as well . The descriptions are very accurate. Dave is great to work with and treats his customers well. I have looked elsewhere for violins but will keep coming back to Dave because the quality of his violins for the price just can’t be beat .
