For over 10 years Vermont Violins has served the students at the Meadowmount School of Music by providing an on-site repair service and a small shop for strings, accessories, instruments, bows, cases and sheet music. They offer all levels of repairs for both instruments and bows, using the finest materials and keeping prices competitive with on-line catalogs.
The violin shop, located on campus is open four days each week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Owner/President Oren Kronick runs the shop along with luthiers from Vermont Violins.
The climate in upstate New York is unpredictable and variable, to say the least. Some summers have been extremely wet; others fair and pleasant. Bowhair is extremely sensitive to humidity changes and will stretch or tighten dramatically as it moves from one clime to another. For this reason, you need to have your bow rehaired for high humidity. Unfortunately, sometimes the bowhair will respond differently once at the school and you may need to have it redone within a few days. This is not always the case, but it has happened. Vermont Violins can provide loaner bows to keep students practicing while their bows are in the shop for rehairs.
If you would like to contact the Violin Shop about bow rehairing email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
