“I have played on some of the finest contemporary violins ever made and Jiwon’s is on par with some of the very best in the world. The tone quality, response and playability of his violin is superb and akin to a great Italian instrument at a fraction of the cost”

Owen Lee and his L.A. Violin Shop have long been trusted and helpful friends of the string community. Their expertise, honesty, and generosity have contributed unmeasurable value to myself and many other string professionals. Needless to have to travel to NY or Paris; one can take advantage of and benefit from the world-class and concert-ready inventory, service, and craftsmanship at this local gem!

As concertmaster of the Pacific Symphony and a private teacher, I have come to rely on the LA Violin Shop and Owen Lee as a trusted friend and valuable resource.  Owen’s expertise, honesty, and generosity have proven to be valued characteristics time and time again.  I highly recommend string players of all levels and budgets consider Owen Lee’s LA Violin Shop for their string instrument needs.  Thankfully, players, young and old, parents, and even collectors, no longer have to go to New York or Chicago to find a world class instrument or have their own world class instrument maintained.
