I bought the violin as a wedding present for my fiance & both he & his teacher are delighted with it. The transaction was handled in an exceptionally fast, friendly & helpful manner & I would love to do business with West Country Violins again.

Brian, My daughter is thrilled with the violin I purshases from you for her for Christmas. Her teachers were surprised with the quality. I am thankful for all the help you gave me in making my choice in what to buy. I have told many of the parents about your business for when they are ready to buy.

It's a pleasure to do business with Brian and Felicity. This is the second violin I have bought from them. The first, a Saxony violin, is excellent; the second, a Mirecourt, is even better; and if I ever aspire to a much more expensive instrument, it will no doubt be out of this world. The service they give is second to none...good descriptions, pictures and sound-clips, instruments which are even better than the pictures, expert set-up and packing, which means that the instrument arrives ready to play and in tune; and prompt dispatch. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

We purchase violins as part of our "Violin Lending Library" which provides instruments to advancing students who need them. It is a pleasure to be able to see, hear, and read about your instruments in order to make an informed buying decision. The instrument we just purchased exceeded our hopes and delighted a young student who will be playing at college level next year. Thank you for such a professional website and your fast, pleasant service.

Brian is a true gentleman and musician! not a materialistic business man!! My mom bought me a bow as a gift from Brian, but due to the canada custom procedures, ( hold the bow for a week, which i didn't know b4). i didn't received the bow for a wk. Being curious, I emailed Brian and explained to him that i havn't received the bow yet. But Brian contact me right away (blink of an eye is more appropriate!) and followed up what happened and explained to me carefully on what is going on. Although is not an expensivie bow, but brian is definitly on my side and more than concern on what is going on! Good customer service!! And now the ending is i am playing the bow happily and love it soooooo much! Now, westcountryviolins.com is added to my favorites bookmark and i browse it everyday to see anything that i like will pop up and definitly will purchase from him again!!

Hello Brian Thank you for a brilliant service. I am very pleased with the violin (Jacob Stainer Copy)and bow I have purchased from you. Delivery was very fast. Ordered on Friday, received 9.am. following Monday. Excellent service and value. The violin is very responsive, with plenty of volume.Uniform accross all the strings and very sweet in the higher registers. My emails were answered very promptly. Not only was Brian most helpful regarding my purchase, he also was very helpful with a computer problem I was experiencing. A pleasure to do business with and I would recommend West Country Violins without any hesitation. Roy Robinson.

Brian - The Van Putten violin I purchased from you is wonderful! The tone is extraordinary, it's beautiful, and very well equipped. I don't know how you do it, but this is the best instrument for the money ( for even twice the money )I've ever purchased. I can't wait to grab one of your nice French instruments! Thanks again, Spencer Smallwood

Hello, I would like to confirm to anybody who would read this reference that Brian from West Country Violins is one of very friendly, faithful violin dealers you can find in this business. This is another time giving Brian a reference; let me put it this way: First time in April 2002, I bought 1st violin from him (Lyon Bernadel- a French violin circa 1925). It is a good violin – It is no crack and no repair with sweet tone, well balanced. Second time, came a few months later in July, I bought a good response-Brazilian bow from “Water Violet” stamped C. Santos at a good price, a good bow that can compete with some bows (same price range that I had tried). This time, on 17-April-2003, I bought a possibly Italian violin labeled “Repaired by James Hardie & Sons, Gold Medallists, Edinburgh 1891” that just arrived this morning. Oh! It is a very nice violin in a well-preserved condition-good, vibrant tone. It is very good value paying for such a nice violin like this one (I paid totally around 940GBP-delivery included). I am quite sure to say that it is real hard to find some good violins at very reasonable prices (and in ready to play condition) on the internet these days. I would like to challenge you to try by yourself before taking this reference! Certainly, the market price of my violins these days is nearly double in North America and much higher in violin shops in Asia. Both violins have got standard set-up. Moreover, he packed my instruments with great care with lots of protective covers. Therefore, I strongly recommend him to everybody who searches for a good instrument at a reasonable price on the net. I will continue buying violins from Brian…again next time. Mr. B. Ruthsdis Bangkok, Thailand, Asia 28th April 2003.
