William Hurley has joined the Singing Woods Violin Shop as an apprentice, colleague, and friend. Bill has worked in the repair shops of several well-known regional music stores, and he is also a violinist with a degree in performance.
In the years since we began promoting the New Violin Family, the alto violin has become the most popular member of the group. We've used the comments and suggestions of our clients to refine the model, and we think it will be the best alto we've ever offered. We expect to have the first lot available at the end of May or early June.
We are very pleased to announce that Ameritage Case Company will be making cases for us that are designed expressly for the alto violin. The cases will have a hard shell, a plush-lined interior, four bow holders, and two capacious compartments for all your accessories. Expected arrival tine is summer of 2015. Please check for availability.
A current price and availability list for New Family instruments has been posted on that page. This page has not been updated in four years, and, amazingly, the prices for soprano and mezzo violins have not increased! If you want one of these, now would be a good time to purchase since prices will be going up shortly.
