So many violin shops can give you the same heebie-jeebies you get at a used car dealership. I appreciate Cy not just because of his high quality work, but because he's honest, doesn't try squeezing extra repairs or cash out of me, and is willing to explain the whys and hows of repairs and decisions without patronizing. Lots of professional violinists can be pretty clueless about how our own instruments tick, and Cy takes the time to help me fill in the blanks in a way that doesn't leave me feeling stupid.

Like the other reviewer mentioned, the location sure doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is like Mary Poppins' carpet bag. Great stuff you don't expect keeps popping out. Cy's work is definitely timely, but the place feels laid-back and sociable among both the staff and customers.

Blum is gone but Cy Amesquita is going strong! This is a little tiny place you'd never see just driving by, but a referral from a music teacher took us there and we are happy to recommend it to others as well. We needed a higher level rental for an advanced student when her instrument was stolen - and this is the only place in town we could find one. Although at first glance it looks like a bare-bones repair shop, it has a lot more than it looks like. Cy was able to produce all the other lost items we needed, from rosin to a digital tuner with metronome.

PROS: This is the kind of place where you'll get old-fashioned service - genuine conversation and no rush to get your money and get you out. Customers waiting are all happy to lounge and swap stories or produce an impromptu concert. Fantastic!
CONS: It may take a while to get repairs completed, the shop stays busy.
