| Hi Leif
I got the fittings this morning and delivered them to my violin
guy to get them put on. Thanks so much they are indeed GORGEOUS!
If anyone ask me which I'm sure you will I'll be sure and
refer them your way. Thanks again - Cenovia Cummins,
I just wanted to say that the violin case arrved perfectly
and that I am very happy with your system because it worked
better than expected. The case arrived on saturday, just a
few days after I made my order to you. The pacage presented
no damage. So thanks again and I'm glad to say I will surely
order some new things from you. - S.P., Spain
Dear Luscombe Violins Inc,
My Duralite Tuba Gig Bag arrived this morning, exactly as
planned. I am very impressed with every aspect of this purchase,
from the freindly,efficient advice and service to the design
and quality of the product. Its a perfect fit,its durable,
it looks nice - unlike my old tuba, its secure (the extra
removable pad is a welcome additional safety feature); and
last, but not least, the dual function carrying straps are
ideal when I will have a trombone in one hand and a suit/
mute bag in the other !!!! - need I go on ? I shall not hesitate
to recommend the said bag to all and sundry in the course
of my work. Thanks again. Yours sincerely, Barry D.
Hi - just letting you know the violin case arrived safely
on the 19th. I'm very pleased with it and look forward to
using it over the years to come. With thanks, S.
Hi Leif, I recieved the cello top wood and am pleased with
it. Thank you. Now......to work! Steve USA
I recieved the books yesterday october 18 . Everything
OK. Very nice books!
Best regards, O.S., Holland
Thank you so much -- the parcel was waiting for me when
I got home from work on Friday! I'll have to get the pegs
fit at some other time after the memorial service, but most
importantly the tailpiece is in place and it sounds wonderful.
I've always loved my "lesser quality" violin...and
it's great to be able to give it the pieces that it deserves.
Thank you again, R. Finley, USA
My wife who is a professional seamstress gives your material
and workmanship an "A". High praise coming from
an extreme nit picker on those things. The bag fits my Yamaha
Eb tuba PERFECTLY. Where the handles are located gives me
PERFECT balance when carrying the thing with my right hand.
A Most Excellent Product. Carl Webster, TubaEuph Mailing List
Gig bag arrived in good order this AM [ Thurs]. Just 48
hours from ordering to delivery on my doorstep. That is excellent
service..Thank you. - T. Webb, B.C., Canada
Good day Leif,
Here's just a quick note to let you know that the cello bow
arrived safely yesterday afternoon. Thanks again for your
prompt service. The bow works well with the borrowed cello
that I currently have. Now its only hours of practice required.
Best regards, D. Freeman, Ontario
The book has arrived. I gave my Italian edition to a violin
maker, but the English looks great and with a good translation.
I am planning to buy other books in the near future, you have
an outstanding catalogue. Thank you very much, A.B.,
The book and plans both arrived early this morning. Thank
you very much for the prompt despatch. My first project is
to repair an old, but poorly maintained, double bass which
has a broken neck. I shall start with a good read using you
book and build from there.
Once again, many thanks, Kind regards, P. Dixon, United
Dear Mr. Luscombe - Am very happy with the wood that arrived
today. I'll be placing more orders in the near future. Best
wishes, B. Kerr, USA
Sirs, My Tapered Reamer arrived today via UPS. It works
beautifully! I'll order from you when I need something else.
Thanks, E. Mathews, USA
I received the Harmonie cello tailpiece, and it works very
well. The sound of my cello opened up immediately with no
break-in period. Also, I finally eliminated the annoying rattles
and buzzes from the fine tuners.
I appreciate your promptness of service and commend you on
an excellent product, one that I can recommend highly to my

I just wanted to let you know I received the shipment today.
Everything was in excellent condition. The shipment got here
quickly. It was a true pleasure doing business with you. Next
time I need to order, I'll be going back to your website.
Thanks, J. Smith, AL USA
Where do I begin? Thank you for all your patience, advice
and knowledge regarding the recent purchase of my violin.
I love it. Having been disappointed with previous violin purchases
in the past, it was very reassuring to deal with someone of
your calibre and expertise.
The violin is absolutely beautiful and the sound is incredible!
I have barely been able to put it down this past week. Today
I took it to my lesson and my instructor was very impressed,
both at the quality of the workmanship and the wonderful,
sweet sound it produced. Actually, he thought we would have
paid much more for the instrument. I would highly recommend
you to anyone (beginner or professional) that is seriously
looking to purchase a quality violin at a reasonable price.
Thanks again. Take care, God Bless, Kevin C., Ontario,
This is just a quick note to thank you and Violin Supply
for your help with my recent internet order. Throughout, your
service was great- fast responses to my questions, and I was
always kept informed as to what was happening. The tools I
ordered arrived safely in Sydney, in perfect condition and
on schedule, so I look forward to doing business with Violin
Supply again in future! Thanks once again, Brian T.,
Thank you very much!! I received the bow and am very happy
with my purchase. I will recommend you guys to my friends.
Sincerely, Jeff A., PA USA
Received my new Yuan Ji violin all in good order. I am
very happy with the quality of workmanship and sound. Happy
fiddling and thank you. Sincerely, D. Allen, Ontario,
Leif, I received my order intact. The wood looks very good.
Thank you for your assistance. I look forward to working with
you in the future. M. Smith, PA, USA
Thank you again for taking the time to speak with me. You
are very knowledgeable, and obviously dedicated to quality
customer service. It is nice to know that you play and test
the violins that you carry yourself. I know that when I went
to the local music shops, they had no idea of their product.
You have been most helpful, and I know that my son will receive
a high quality violin. ...
You are welcome to use my comments in your testimonial page.
It was such a wonderful experience for us to be able to purchase
a violin from someone who personally picked and really knew
in detail about all the violins in your store's inventory!
I had been so frustrated with going to a music store and just
having them show me a high priced violin and telling me it
was the best just because it was made in Germany. Since they
did not know how to play the violin like you do, they could
not tell me about sound quality or any other details on the
violins. Your knowledge of the instrument and the various
makers made me comfortable with your recommendations for a
violin for our son. ... With great thanks, Linda Desens,
Dear Mr. Luscombe, I received my bow in the mail today,
and I can say that after just a few minutes playing it, I
can notice the drastic difference between it and the bow I
had from my school. Thank you very much for you service, I
appreciate it immensely. Brent Edmondson, DE, USA
The double case came yesterday, Saturday, May 25. Thank
you very much for the quick shipment! The case is just what
I expected, and I thank you very much... I particularly like
how easily the case latches; and also the padded nature of
the cover. Thanks for everything!
Best regards, Joan C., Minnesota
My viola bow arrived safely. It is beautiful and I just
love it. Again, thank you for all your help and I will be
sure to recommend you to my string playing friends. Sheila
I received my parcel today. The pegs fit my fiddle perfectly.
Thank you very much for your service. I found that it was
very easy to order from your company. I will look forward
to doing more musically inclined ordering from you in the
Thanks again, Lauren Lee, Oklahoma
I recently purchased your small tuba bag for my F tuba.
It is terrific. I was pleased that your product had such high
quality at such a fair price. I will reccomend you to my collegues.

Hi. Thank you for your excellent service, the package arrived
yesterday. I shall certainly return to you when funds allow!

Hello, I picked up my order today and am very happy with
it! It looks like a very nice case that will serve my husband
well as he uses it to replace a very dilapidated one. It is
a surprise for his birthday later this week and so I really
appreciate the prompt service! Thank you very much!
Tami C., Missouri
I just wanted to reply, in these busy times I had not gotten
back. My wife loved the Violin bow. Her old one broke and
I took the hint to get one for her birthday. Your packaging
and quality of service were supreme. I thank you for prompt
and courteous service. Yours Truly,
David Urban, USA
Navigating through the Net looking for a violin I came
across Leif Luscombe Violins. With certain caution I expressed
my desire. I informed Mr. Luscombe that I knew very little
about violins, that I was going to put my trust in him. The
exchange of Emails established right away confidence. It almost
seemed I was at the store, such was the quality of the service
offered. The instrument received was exactly what I need.
I hope you continue to help other wanderers of the Net! Carlos

"Dear Fine Folks at Luscombe Violins Inc.,
My (high school age) daughter was given the opportunity to
choose any violin case she wanted as her birthday present.
She is an excellent violinist and takes exceptional care of
her antique violin. She searched all the local stores and
every site on the web. She was most impressed by your Explorer
Oblong Violin Case. So, we purchased it (and a wolfe shoulder
rest) with much help on your part...Thank you. She is soooooo
very, very happy with both. The case is wonderfully classy
and well made. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to
do business with you. Thank you again." J. Gast

My order of 1704 varnish supplies, plus polishes and books
arrived in Topeka Kansas safe and sound. Of course being a
native Buffalonian with relatives in Fort Erie, Ontario, I
knew about the quality of Canadian goods and services! The
well written books on violin making have provided useful technical
information to assist in my refinishing task, while reducing
my risk of ruining the instrument. Rest assured I'll be back
for more. Thanks, Sam Markello, Ph.D., Kansas
I have received the violin case - it arrived on Monday
morning. I am very pleased with it, as well as your rates.
Thank you very much! I will certainly keep your website in
mind for any future needs I might have with regard to my violin.
Also, I very much enjoyed the photos of the violins you have
for sale! I have rarely seen so many beautiful violins in
Thank you again! Colleen E. Miller, New Mexico
I am very happy with the quality of the bows you sent me.
I know at that price range it is hard to find consistency
in quality. Yours were all very good.
Thanks again for all your help and patience. Bruce
Thank you for your Email. I inspected the violin carefully.
It is flawless with regard to workmanship and the way the
instrument has been handled from the maker to the owner.
I played it a couple times. I love the sweet sound of it.
It is my pleasure to own and play this beautiful instrument.
There a lot in the market I had been searching for, but this
is the one.
I recognize your quality and reliability of service to your
customer like me. Regardless of distance, your service
meets or exceeds my expectations. I wish you a
very successful business. Amata Sos, California
Mr. Luscombe's website is the best for violins that I have
seen. I purchased a violin from Mr. Luscombe a few months
ago. It is a beautiful instrument and has a wonderful sound.
I thoroughly enjoying playing this handsome violin.
The service which Mr. Luscombe gives his customers is unsurpassed.
The quality of the instrument which I purchased is superb.
I would highly recommend his instruments and services. Barbara
We picked up the case today. It appears to be of the highest
quality. It actually is better than described... Thanks again.
Christopher Bevers, Washington
The violin outfit arrived today. The sound of the Gliga
violin is exquisite; its tone is sweet and powerful, far better
than what I expected. It is easy to see how carefully you
select the instruments and accessories you offer. Thanks for
your impeccable service. Jorge Pliego, Pennsylvania
