What our customers have to say

Excellent Service!!! CK Violins has been the “go to” shop when it comes to repairing an instrument or buying a new instrument. Whether you are a new student searching your first violin or you are a professional looking for a new instrument CK Violins is the shop to go to because they will take good care of you.

I am now a proud owner of a beautiful instrument from CK Violins. The owner, Nicholas was so patient and willing to work with me during my search for a violin that would better serve my needs at music school. He has been very considerate with my family’s purchase and even threw in a free violin case and bow. I found just what I was looking for at C K Violins. I love the quality and personality of my instrument and I look forward to practicing on it even more!

CK Violins is a great place to buy your violin from. They have great service and when your violin grows to small for you, they will let you trade your violin for a different size. There prices are also unbeatable. They supply everything you thing you need. Also, when your violin breaks, they fix it right away for you. So what are you doing? Get your violin from CK today!

15 years, 10 violins, 3 cellos. I’ve shopped at CK Violins for 15 years and have purchased or traded in approximately 13 violins and cellos. Each time my daughters (I have 5) outgrew their instruments, I knew I could count on CK Violin to help us find a bigger, better sounding instrument. Nicholas, the owner is never intimidating and always makes time and treats you as his most important customer no matter how large or small your purchase. He never charges extra for bows or cases and even throws in freebies like stands, donuts, and rosins. He even replaced broken bows at no charge. If you need repairs done on your instrument, just give him a call and schedule a time and he’ll try to have it fixed quickly while you wait. He has also provided repair at no charge for all our instruments over the years. I’ve also shopped at another violin shop and have purchased a couple of violins from them, but the service is not the same. One suggestion is always take your child’s teacher along to help you find the best sounding instrument within your price range. CK Violin has an excellent rapport with many string teachers on the island. In our case, our teachers called ahead to let Nicholas know what they’re looking for in regards to quality, price, and size; and each time he picked out a range of instruments for our teacher and my child to try out at our convenience. You can’t ask for better service anywhere else.

Unlimited service violin shop. This past Saturday, I was at CK violins for my cello that I purchased years ago. The owner was so busy with a lot of families, but he manages to make a lot of time for me to adjust the sound post and touch up the cello. He also explained how to take care of my instrument daily. Every time I go to this shop, I feel that I am welcome and I always get my business done right there. All the services since I purchased the cello were free. I highly recommend this friendly professional shop.

Over the years that I have been playing the violin, I switched to many different learning centers. However, I always come back to CK Violins. Everything you need for an instrument is here. The service is great as well! I get many compliments on the violins I buy at this store. Whenever I need my instrument fixed, it is quick and easy. Mr.Zou is friendly and easy to converse with as well. I take lessons once a week, and every week, I get feedback and I learn new things. The teachers are experienced and they have a great teaching style. Whether you need a repair, a new instrument, or lessons for your instrument, CK Violins has it.
