For all of your orchestral stringed instrument needs…

ABOUT US

Decades in the trade…

Although McHugh Violins has been in business since 1985, owner Simon McHugh started at Newark Technical College in England in 1976, completing the “Musical Instruments, General Repairs” course with merit. Each student spent half of the time learning violin repairs and basic making hand skills, and the other half with woodwind related restorations. Simon learned early woodwind restoration, including woodturning and silversmithing which eventually enhanced the skills needed for bow work. We offer: Restoration and rehairs Instruments Bows Strings, Cases and Accessories Evaluations Competitive pricing! We have always felt that our accessory and string pricing should be in line with the large online sources. With the advent of the internet, we understand the ease with which a customer can buy online; we just want to offer similar prices when you visit us locally. Occasionally because of high shipping costs on some items, we can only come close - but in general we think that you’ll be surprised. As our site develops, we will introduce current string and accessory pages for your convenience.

We’re proud to carry products from well-known instrument sources such as Howard Core & Co; Eastman Strings; West Coast Stringed Instruments, Amber Strings and Ifshin Violins. We’re always searching for new high quality instruments at excellent prices, and sometimes these emerge from very small suppliers too.

Value added in every transaction…

It’s just not our purpose to sell the very cheapest violins in

the marketplace. We proudly put a 2-year limited warranty

on our instruments, so that you can be sure you are getting

the highest quality at a reasonable price. Each is finally set

up in our workshops with premium strings and

components for years of trouble free use. This means that

our new entry level violin will be around $490 in an outfit -

which includes a violin with nicely figured tonewoods, a

Wittner Ultra brand tailpiece, Thomastik Dominant strings,

Core brand case, Fiberglass bow, Everest shoulder rest and

rosin.

What about the EBay violins for $79.00?

What, indeed. These are no more than toys, and offer no

redeeming qualities for the serious student. Over the years

we have learned exactly what teachers want, and that is an

instrument with well-fitting pegs; a carefully dressed

fingerboard; a handcut bridge; a carefully fitted soundpost,

and premium quality strings. And a capable support staff to

help out with free adjustments long after the sale…
