Kamimoto String Instruments 1/10/2006

For violinists of all levels, a trip to Kamimoto Stringed Instruments is a real treat. Although they also work with other instruments, violins dominate the place. They are everywhere! There are rows of wonderful old violins that you can pick up and play. It is fun just to go in and try them all! Kamimoto Strings is fantastic when it comes to service. The did an amazing job with my violin and in repairing my bow. I was amazed at how much difference having them adjust my bridge made- They are so expert at what they do that they brought out all the depth in my violin's tone. It was just amazing the difference they made in it! more
