Greg Sapp's reputation as a skilled restorer, repairer and maker of fine violins is known throughout the country. Now, this high level of craftmanship is being joined with an equally high level of customer service, courtesy of Mary Ellen (Mel), Greg's wife.

Mel takes great pride in providing assistance to the parent trying to understand the confusing world of stringed instruments, as well as the player trying to find the RIGHT instrument or just the most comfortable chinrest or shoulder rest.
