Introducing's new violin business directory

September 27, 2011 at 2:48 PM

Have you noticed that gold box around one of the links up there on our navigation bar? The one around the word "SHOP"?

We hope you have.

That's the home of's new commercial directory. It's the go-to place on the site to find retailers selling instruments, accessories, sheet music and even gifts for violinists. Please give it a click the next time you're looking for strings, rosin, a shoulder rest (oh, no, not that issue again), or even a new bow or violin. Not only will you find the best violin shops online at, you'll also be supporting the businesses that are supporting this community.

You also can find links to the shops in our directory on the right side of all pages, along with links to the other businesses, schools and arts organizations that are supporting the site with sponsorship campaigns this month. Laurie and I would like to thank all these organizations for their support. Without them, we couldn't afford to continue hosting this community and bringing all the original reporting and tips on the site to you.

If you run a shop or violin-related business, it's not too late to get a place in the directory. Just visit for more information about the directory, as well as other sponsorship opportunities on
