Jim is the person who professional musicians respect. He is passionate about his craft and has a gentle unassuming manner. Never any pressure to purchase. He loves to talk about strings and instruments and life. He is a wizard who looks over Garland Ave neighborhood while bending over his work.
I purchased my upgrade cello from him 4 years ago and it happened that two professional cellists also entered the shop and we all had a grand time exploring the instrument. It has been a wonderful choice and I know I will see Jim for my next upgrade.

I've known the owner of Violin Works for a number of years now. When I was looking for an instrument he was recommended to me by my violin teacher. My teacher said that Jim (the owner) is who he always goes to and trusts. I found Jim to be extremely honest and trustworthy. He has helped me with 3 different violins now - and I'll always go to him when I have a need.

Jim completely regraduated an older custom built instrument for me. It changed it from a ho-hum instrument to one that gets attention and compliments on a regular basis. People are really impressed with it's sound.

Recently he helped me find and acquire a new instrument. It took a few months and I played a lot of different instruments that he showed me. There was never any pressure to buy - he wanted to be sure we found the right instrument for me.

I couldn't be happier or more confident with a business than I am with Violin Works.

This shop was a wonderful find. Very knowledgeable in highly trained staff. Courteous, helpful, honest. I was looking for something in the $2000 range and they had probably the better selection in Spokane. They did say they had some less expensive, as little as $400, but that wasn't what I was looking for. After talking with other teachers and players in Spokane, it seems as though Violin Works is one of the most respected sales and repair shops in the area......HONEST AND COMPETENT!!
