In addition to the instruments we make, the shop at Moroz Violins has a range of new and antique violins, violas, cellos and bows.
Of particular interest are our Skarstad/Moroz instruments. Since 1992, we’ve been producing these in-house “workshop” violins, violas and cellos. We begin with an unfinished body and scroll made to our specifications. Then, in our shop, we graduate the top and back, fit a bass bar, set the neck, and apply a fine oil varnish. The result is a handmade instrument of high quality for any musician looking for a great sound at a moderate price.
In addition, our ever-changing stock includes everything from new, imported, entry-level and intermediate instruments, to fine antique European instruments and bows. Estates and families will often come to me for an assessment of the value of their instruments and bows. They then might consign these items to our shop, and in the past we have sold many fine instruments, including a notable violin by the Brothers Amati made in Cremona in 1626, and an unusual Maggini-copy violin made by Jean Baptiste Vuillaume in 1842.
At Moroz Violins, you can expect my personal attention and expertise. As a master violin maker, I can help you define and understand the kind of sound you’re looking for, and provide assistance in selecting the instrument and bow that suit you best.
Every instrument purchased from Moroz Violins comes with my unconditional guarantee of satisfaction.
