Welcome to Vitek Violins

We are a family run shop. We take pride in that, being professional players ourselves, we approach our instruments through a player’s ear. We specialize in one-on-one service for our clients, whether you are looking to buy an instrument or needing a repair.

We routinely travel to attend prestigious trade shows in North America to personally choose the finest instruments and bows available at their price points from violin makers world wide.


  • Its wonderful to have Julian in town. I take my bows and instruments to him and send my students to him regularly. He does fine bow rehairs at a reasonable rate and, being a fine player himself, he understands the needs of the performer when it comes to adjusting and repairing instruments.

  • We recently bought a new violin from Julian. He was very patient with us as he walked us through the process of finding the right instrument for our son. He shared his wealth of knowledge and experience, setting aside time for us each week to discuss the different instruments. Julian worked within our budget, and guided us to a wonderful instrument that our son is thrilled with! Over the years, Julian has provided us with bow and violin repair services and violin case sales. We have always found him to provide us with professional, excellent service and we always recommend [him] to our musician friends.

  • At Vitek Violins, I had the comfort to know that the instrument and bow that I purchased were carefully selected to be amongst the best of their class, and honestly priced. It was a true peace of mind knowing that whether I was buying a beginner, intermediate or professional instrument, the passionate and professional attention with which the instrument was setup, guaranteed that it sounded the best that it could. Over the years, it was with confidence that I purchased new violin accessories, and the Luthier services that Vitek Violins has provided me were exemplary. The highly expert and dedicated services I received makes Vitek Violins my number one choice. Thank you.
