Lasley Violins provides friendly, expert service with a personal touch. As with people, each violin is unique. Fittings, strings, bows, and set-up can all alter the sound and playability of an instrument. When purchasing an instrument, the player needs to find one that meets his or her needs for sound, style, ease of playing, and budget. For these and other reasons, we discourage impulse buys, and we donâ€™t do internet sales. Weâ€™d like to meet you, discuss your needs for an instrument, and help you take the time to make the best purchase you can, within your budget.
