Joshua Blevins

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Joshua Brian Blevins, born and raised in Barstow, Ca. I spent some time in Orange County studying the art of violin making. I moved to the city of Riverside in order to pursue a dream and career as a violin maker. Not only have I been able to achieve this dream by opening a violin shop, I have had the blessing of being able to study under several violin makers and have learned valuable lessons from each one. Those who have had great impact on my carrer as a violin maker are: Mrs. R. E. Evans of Riverside, Roger Foster of Orange County, Ralph Agens of Hsperia and Michael Darnton of Chicago. I am also a member of the Southern California Association of Violin Makers(SCVM) and the Violin Sociaty of America (VSA).My shop is tittled J. B. Blevins & Sons Violin Shop, located 3440 North Academy Blvd, Colorado Springs, Colorado. My goal is to build instruments that fit the personal playing style of each musician. My instruments are very high quality. They have great tone, excellent craftsmanship and professional set-ups to meet your individual playing style. They are excellent for professional musicians or collectors who are looking for modern string instruments. I pursue perfection and utmost quality in my work. As I work in the traditional style very much like the classical makers Stradivarius and Guarneri, I strive to develop the quality of sound that is so deserving to every string player. If you are interested in one of my instruments, please feel free to call or stop in. My websight is:
