We were regular customers at Farrell Violions when our child was studying cello. We bought strings there and had them do some repairs. We also bought a cello from them. Our child was allowed to try as many instruments as she wanted in the shop and had as much time as needed to make a decision. The cello we bought was very good for the price we paid. Mr. Farrell was very pleasant to deal with and the shop is full of interesting things to look at while you wait.
