Ralph Rabin

Madison, Wisconsin

Phone: 608-274-8272

Sells? Yes
Repairs? Yes

Ralph sells and repairs very fine violins and bows. He works with fraction sizes and full sizes, and often sets them up himself. He's got fantastic ears and can fine-tune an instrument as well as anyone in a major city. I understand he was trained in Cremona...

I bought a bow from Ralph. He went above and beyond to make sure my daughter received the best bow for her.

P.S. I bought my violin and bow from him. He was very obliging, and helpful, not to mention that I still take it to him when it needs something.
