Applebaum Violin Shop

The Applebaum Violin Shop provides professional, attentive and courteous service to the string musicians of the Puget Sound area. We offer violins, violas, cellos and bows at all levels from student to professional, and our repair and restoration work is always at the highest level of quality. We also carry a wide range of cases and accessories and offer appraisals, consignment services and high-quality student rentals. We are proud to count as customers many of the musicians of the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra, the Northwest Sinfonietta, the Tacoma Youth Symphony and faculty and students at the University of Puget Sound and Pacific Lutheran University.

We take pride in offering the same high level of knowledgeable service to serious amateur players as we do to our professional customers. Our work is always backed by a deep respect for the traditions of the craft and an in-depth knowledge of the techniques of the trade.

Please stop in to see our extensive and interesting collection of available instruments and bows or to inquire about repairs and adjustments to your instrument. The shop is located in the well-known Harmon building, across Pacific Avenue from the South 21st Street exit from I-705.
