The manager is extremely knowledgeable about all of the instruments and bows she is selling, and David, the owner, is an absolute master with string instruments. This is not really a casual walk-in type of place if you're looking for an instrument - but if...More

As a violin teacher in CT, I rely on David Segal violins for their quality instruments, honest pricing and amazing service for my students. Their efforts enable our students to have better instruments for their study without breaking the bank. Diane is truly a gem!

This place sucked. Nobody should ever come to this place. They shouldn't even be selling instrument with their attitude. They think they know everything, and I don't have problem with that, but don't give the attitude that customer don't know anything.
