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 cannot thank you enough for the services you have provided me. I thought of you towards the beginning of the year when I went to a violin shop to get my bow rehaired. I could not believe how unfriendly the man was (I won't give any names). Then I found myself thinking, 'Maybe he's not that bad, I'm just used to Jan and Anna'. (Haha, true story!)

Thanks again for EVERYTHING. You've both helped me reach where I am today, and I'll be forever grateful."
