Words From Our Customers

  • Phil Gelfer

    During my time as a public school educator, I have worked with all types of students at many different levels.   No matter what their needs were, they were all cared for with professional help, understanding, and compassion.  Bob Murphy of Murphy’s violin shop is one of the most caring and dedicated professionals I have ever worked with.  Everyone is treated to red carpet service when entering his shop, whether it’s adjusting and instrument, graduating a fingerboard or selecting  that very first  instrument, Bob certainly knows the trade

  • Kelly Gelfer

    Bob’s frequent philanthropic actions to schools and kids in need are not widely publicized, but many teachers can attest first hand to the many random acts of kindness from Bob Murphy.  Looking for a new instrument, an upgrade, repairs?  Take the time and spend some time Bob Murphy.

  • Sam Gelfer

    Bob Murphy’s Violin Shop is always the first place I recommend to my students for any of their musical needs whether it is purchasing a new instrument, getting one repaired or just seeking out information.  Murphy’s is the perfect example of what we want most out of a place of business in America.  Locally owned, high-quality products and service and a friendly welcoming environment.

  • Matthew Gelfer

    Quality Instruments and Affordable prices very seldom go together, but that is precisely what Bob Murphy’s Violin Shop offers.  Whether you are renting an instrument for the first time, buying your own or upgrading to a professional level, you are guaranteed the care and expertise that can only come from decades of experience.

  • Tina Bates

    We absolutely love Bob Murphy’s Violin Shop. Both of my children’s violins were purchased from Bob’s shop. Their customer service is outstanding, from before we purchased and continuing well after. They took the time to educate us and our children, and lovingly support them along the way. We had tried other shops closer to our home but no one compares in quality, craftsmanship and outstanding support. As an added bonus, it’s always wonderful to hear how Bob gives back to the community and those less fortunate. Nobody does it better!

  • Bob Borman

    A Couple of years ago I purchased a used restored Juzek violin from Bob Murphy’s Violin Shop. I got it for a song. Bob’s Shop is downstairs at Murphy’s Music having heard my son play through the floorboards he said “this Kids got talent” let me do something, so he took apart the Juzek I purchased and completely regraduated in the inside of the instrument. The violin now doesn’t play it sings! What a difference it made. I’ve heard violins that sell for tens of thousands of dollars that don’t compare to the regraduation he did on this instrument.

  • Tommy Mulvihill

    I have bought an electric fiddle and a beautiful bow from Bob Murphy. He’s also fixed a few of my fiddles as well and does a great job. A true professional at his craft.
