Welcome to Gregory S. Sapp Violins, Ltd.

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.

Our location in Batavia (on the border of Batavia and West Chicago), has 3,000 square feet that houses our inventory of Instruments and Bows, our Workshop (where we Repair, Restore and Make Instruments), Instrument Rental Services and Cases, Sheet Music and Accessories.

The shop located at 40 N. Wells St. in Chicago, is a Repair Studio where we provide repair and restoration services (specializing in tonal adjustments).
