I was very impressed with my overall experience in doing business with West Country Violins. The customer service aspect I would rate wery high and the violin I purchased sounds even better than I had imagined and is an incredibly beautiful instrument. Brian answered all my questions promtly and was very helpful while I was finalizing my decision as to which one to purchase. Again, I am very happy with this violin and will definitely do business with W.C.V. again.

Where to begin...Brian is more than a seller of violins, he is a friend to those who are looking for the right violin. If one looks at how much goes into his web page, you can begin to see care and effort that belongs to him. It is the only web site that I came across that has both pictures and sound bytes. Brian has put up with my many e-mails regarding the JTL violin that I recently purchased, returning e-mails were always prompt and thoughtful. He even e-mailed while on a purchasing trip in France! That is a dedication that is not found in todays business world. My JTL is more than what I expected. The sound is even better than the sound bytes! And just as stated, it got here in just three days... England to Ohio during the Christmas rush. Now that is service. The packaging of the violin couldn't be any better. It took me ten minutes to get all the bubble wrap from the instrument. For those that are thinking about purchasing a violin over the internet, I would say forget about the other sites. Brian has the integrity that is lacking elsewhere and the knowledge to assist anyone from the discriminating concert violinist to the beginning student. You can purchase from Brian with the confidence of knowing the violin you purchase will be the one that you keep the rest of your life. I know I will keep mine. Thanks again for all your help Brian.

I am very pleased with my puchase. The instrument was just as described, and as splendid as the sound byte was, the instrument was far more impressive in person.

This is my second testimonial! The very first instrument I purchased from Brian was also the first one I tried – a German “Carlo Storioni” violin, which bowled me over. Following on my first purchase, I recently spotted on Brian’s website, which I regularly and eagerly peruse, another late 19th century German violin, which seemed to offer similar tonal merits to the Carlo Storioni. Sure enough, when I tried it out at Brian’s home (the journey is recommended), it turned out to possess a lovely mature, clear tone. I purchased it on the spot. Similar rewarding experiences await those privileged to try out the instruments Brian so carefully selects.

The violin was exactly as described and sounded better than I expected for such an inexpensive price. I am very satisfied and will most certainly do business with Brian again very soon. Brian is great !!

The violin I purchased from Mr. Ward-Smith is in excellent condition and plays beautifully. The photographs of the instruments tend to show every flaw, but the instruments themselves look much better. I received the instrument in three business days. Overall, I am very pleased with the purchase, considering it was over the internet and in different counry. I will not hesitate to make any future violin purchases with Mr. Ward-Smith.

Purchased my very first violin through Brian and West Country Violin. I had LOTS of questions and I was SO pleased with the patient and helpful direction I received. Just started lessons, and my instructor and the local luthier are both very impressed with my instrument and it's price. A delightful experience - I'll be back.

This is the second violin I have owned and I was initally hesitant to purchase a violin over the internet until I found Brian's site. He has done a fantastic job. I could tell that he really cares and enjoys what he does. The sound clips and pictures provide a great way to compare violins and help you decide the right one for you. Brian was very quick and friendly answering any questions and my violin arrived in three days after I purchased it. It was carefully packaged and was exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend this site without hesitation to anyone of any skill level. Thank you Brian! George

Dear Brian: Thank you for such prompt service and for making available a quality violin we would have never found otherwise. The sound clips are excellent and well done and the photos are accurate and show more flaws than we actually can see looking at the violin, the color representation is accurate also. We appreciate your willingness to answer questions and payment was easy and quick. Thank you very much for a great sounding violin, with minimal fuss. Good violins can definitely be purchased over the internet, when the salesman is such an experienced restorer.
