Gainesville Violins

New Shop Hours:

We are open Monday - Thursday, from 1pm-5pm.

Appointments are highly suggested, especially for purchases.

Founded at the end of 1997 in Gainesville, Florida, Gainesville Violins Inc is wholly owned and operated by Jan and Anna van Rooyen, aided by a number of assistants.

Gainesville Violins is dedicated to providing superior quality instruments and service to all of our customers around the world. We exert ourselves especially to help teachers.

"A pound of experience is worth a ton of theory": Jan has handled more than 25,000 instruments in his life!

While Forbes Magazine has not yet touted bow collecting as an important enterprise, we have seen a steep rise in this activity. Gainesville Violins provides a full service regarding violin, viola, cello and bass bows – modern as well as vintage and antique, all sizes and price levels, sales, repairs and re-hairing. From time to time we have Daniel Dorfler as well as David Hawthorne bows, not to mention other famous name brands such as D Muniz Brasil and other Arcos Brasil makers. Inquire today by emailing jan@gviolins.com.

The main difference is that WE really care about YOU.

I played in church this morning for the first time. It seemed to be a blessing. Several former violin players (in their youth) commented how rich my violin sounded and how much they enjoyed it. That is as much a compliment to you and your beautiful instrument, as it is to me.

Sincerely, CW
