A Full Service Violin Shop:

Violin Repair, Maintenance, Restoration, Sales and Rentals

About Us

Sibert Violins is a full service violin shop located in Northern Albemarle County, Virginia. The owner has been restoring, repairing, building, and selling violin family instruments since 1989.

In 2006, we began offering high quality student rentals. The owner has a Doctorate in Music Education and 27 years experience in teaching stringed instruments. Parents looking for quality and correct sizing can rely on Sibert Violins for assistance in finding the right instrument.

We offer a full range of maintenance and repairs, including bow rehairing, bridge fitting, soundpost setting and adjustment, crack repair, varnish restoration, neck resetting, fingerboard dressing, peg fitting and adjustment, and the list goes on… We are happy to help you with complete restoration of a family heirloom, or just maintaining the health of your instrument.

Sibert Violins has a selection of antique/restored violins, violas, cellos, and occasionally a bass available for sale as well. Our clients include students, professional musicians, fiddlers, and recreational players. All are welcome.

We do not keep regular business hours, but see clients by appointment. Appointments are generally scheduled weekdays 4PM-7PM, and with great flexibility on weekends. To schedule an appointment, please call (434)825-5660. If you call before 4PM weekdays, please leave a message and we will return your call between 4PM and 7PM. You will likely reach us after 4PM unless we are working with another client. You may also send us an e-mail to schedule an appointment.

Occasionally we buy violins, violas, cellos, or basses if they are older and European or American made.  Condition is not important as we are happy to have instruments to restore.  We do not buy newer or student instruments.  Please contact us if you think you may have an instrument that we would be interested in purchasing.

Sibert Violins has served clients all over the central Virginia area, including the cities of Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Harrisonburg, Lynchburg, Richmond, Staunton, and Waynesboro, as well as Albemarle, Augusta, Bridgewater, Chesterfield, Culpepper, Fluvanna, Greene, Madison, McGaheysville, Nelson, Palmyra, and Rockingham.
