We both rent (for school) and own (for home) a viola for my son. They have been just superb as my son has grown and required larger and larger instruments.

An amazingly helpful, educated and personal staff. We found the viola my 13 year old son will play for years!! A stress free day.

As an amateur violist, I appreciate their friendliness and welcoming atmosphere. Never intimidating or patronizing, they just want everyone to experience the joy of music making and will do all that they can to meet your needs no matter where you play, at home, on the concert stage, or at school. I have had major service done on my viola and have had multiple visits over the years for minor repairs and bow rehairs. They have been great and I recommend them to all my fellow orchestra and chamber music friends.

Bought a new Bow and some Strings for my Viola with the help of Thomas. He was very helpful in helping me narrow down the type of strings to go for!

The people at Mt Airy Violins and Bows are as beautiful as the instruments they carry. Had a wonderful experience from beginning to end and would highly recommend. Thank you MAVAB.

Elizabeth's visceral appreciation and love of the bow is evident whenever she examines one or discusses it. I'm sure her attention to instruments, and that of her staff is the same. It's a pleasure knowing her and her clients are a privileged lot!
