"As Executive and Artist Director of the Academy of Strings, I can recommend The String House of Rochester, New York without hesitation. They have provided instruments of outstanding quality and value to our students for over fifteen years. Their willingness to work with our families in their choice of an instrument is in my opinion, second to none in the country. This type of service and genuine interest in matching instrument to musician is hard to come by these days. When you couple sincere help and advice with the highest value pricing I have seen, you end up with a winning combination."
