Customer Feedback . . .

"We have been customers of Henry Bischofberger Violins for a few years now, first with renting a range of instruments, and now in care of our first owned instrument. We have visited all of the strings and luthier shops in the Seattle area, but I have come to trust this shop over others because of the high quality of their instruments and service. We found better sound from this shop's rentals, and I have appreciated being able to easily communicate directly with the luthier, Henry, when we have questions." - S. Chan
