We had a wonderful experience renting instruments for our triplets through Manchester Music. Each girl was treated as individual, which is not always the case with multiples, and fitted properly for their instrument. Everyone was friendly and so knowledgeable, it was a great start to my girls loving their strings class at school. I highly recommend them for all musical needs!

I recently took a violin in for repairs. Andrey, quickly assessed what needed to be done to address the issues I had and presented me with a quote. The work that was done was exceptional. I am very pleased with the whole experience. I will definitely be a return customer. Thanks Andrey.

Whenever we visit to repair our violins or our cellos, they will do more than what’s expected. Andrey especially is such an amazing person. Like when we visit other music stores, they charge for every small thing they do. But Andrey is very knowledgeable about stringed instruments and someone that you can really trust with fixing your instrument and he always goes above and beyond with his customer service. I highly recommend that you choose Manchester music for lessons or repairs or rentals. They are hands down the best place for stringed instruments and our number one stop to go to for our violins and cellos.

I was so pleased with Andre’s work on my 1904 violin. As a teacher and performer it’s always nerve-wrecking to drop off your instrument, but she came back to me in beautiful condition. I needed a bridge replacement and sound post adjustment and I’m thrilled with the new balance. Even my orchestra stand partner noticed a difference in my tone through a loud rehearsal! Have no fears, your instrument is in good hands here.
