I just purchased a violin and bow from this company, and honestly was worried about buying on line and from so far away. Well, my concerns disappeared when the violin arrive safe and sound and on schedule. The instrument was 100% as described, and the packaging, well, as the young people say, OMG. The transaction was so well done that I immediately purchased a bow. It arrived, as did the violin. Perfect!
So, if you have even the slightest concern, don't worry. You will be as happy as I am. Take my word for it.

I have purchased a violin and three violin bows from Brian in the last two years. Brian belongs to a rare breed. He is a gentleman and can be taken at his word. Doing business with him is straightforward, open and utterly satisfying. As a violin dealer Brian is an exemplar, and his method of doing business is more than worthy of notice and imitation.

Cautious about buying from a violin dealer? When it comes to buying a violin or a bow from Brian, you can forget the received wisdom in the safe and sure knowledge that his is a special case.

Brian is very patient to help me to choose a violin bow.
He has tried the bows himself and provide his comments for me.
He also very welcomed to exchange another bow as I don't feel the first bow suitable for me.
And finally i got a great bow, Thanks Brian.

I have just bought a Charles Nicolas Bazin bow from West Country Violins. The email discussion with Brian before the purchase was quite lengthy but Brian was patient, helpful and highly professional. I was wary of buying something so expensive without seeing it, but the bow arrived superbly packaged and exactly as described. It's a great bow and I am delighted with it.
I thoroughly recommend West Country Violins.

It's a pleasure working with Brian to select a bow that I really like. Brian helps to shortlist, recommend and try these contestants out for me and tells me his opinion.

Though it didnt work out during my 1st attempt, i managed to find a good french bow that I like. Thanks Brian and Felicty for your prompt reply and shipment. I got my bow by the 4th day after the bow has been shipped out.

Really enjoyed the process of buying a violin from WCV. Brian and Felicity extremely helpful and patient. Fine selection of instruments, all well described but not easy to pick the one which would be best for me. In the end I arranged a trip to Devon to try some of them. Pleased I did. Played some lovely violins but came away with a pearl.

I bought a French violin online from Brian. I was looking to buy either a French violin or German violin but Brian’s selection of lovely French violins convinced me to get a French violin. The violin description on the website is accurate, it has a sweet and mellow sound as described. It is easy to play and has the characteristic French violin sound.

The buying experience is very good. Brian is very patient and prompt in answering my queries, even over the weekend. When I remarked on some patches of varnish blemishes, he volunteered and took extra effort to improve on the varnish.

The violin was securely packed and arrived in 4 days. It comes with a new Despiau bridge, tailpiece, pegs, chinrest and soundpost. The bridge and sound post are intact. These parts are nicely setup and the violin is ready to play out of the box.

The violins in Brian collection have been carefully selected. Like all good things, you need to be quick to get the best deal because I noticed that many good buys were gone. You can have confidence in buying from Brian.
