What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Avatar Kundan Sen ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    Super happy that my son's violin teacher recommended Murphy's rental for his violin instead of buying yet another one from Amazon or the classifieds. … More The rental is a much better quality, and a higher price segment, than what he was using at school.Murphy's also has a superb onsite repair facility. When his strings broke a few weeks away from his state exams, they were able to replace them within minutes - no wait time, no second visit to the store.As an added benefit - the rental portion of the monthly fees converts into credit for future instrument purchases, in case he decides to stick around and upgrade his instrument a few years down the line.

    My grandmother played music professionally and I recently was bequeathed her 275 year old violin. It had been improperly stored for nearly 50 years and … More was in desperate need of restoration. I have known Bob Murphy for many years. His professionalism and abilities have always been A+. It was an obvious choice where to take my new treasure. Bob, his son Rob, and staff were all ready and able to help me through the extensive work that needed to be done. I couldn’t be happier. It looks and sounds amazing - I have trouble believing this is the same instrument.
