What Our Customers Say!

James: "The Team of Estefan and Samantha is a great union. Samantha is a wonderful luthier. Estefan provides a very deep background in sales and teaching. I cannot imagine a better combination of two people to serve the needs of beginning student to professional. They are also two great, wonderful people. "

Jorge: "
I visited San Antonio for a performance. My bow needed a rehair and my viola really needed some work. Estefan and Samantha really took care of my instrument’s needs. They showed their expertise through their work. I can tell they always make sure customers are satisfied with their work. Thank you!"

Charles L: "We purchased a violin made by Samantha at the recommendation of my daughter's violin teacher. The entire purchase process was very smooth and customer friendly. Mr. Cortez showed us 8 different violins based on our target price range and we were able to spend sufficient time playing and testing every one of them. They explained everything so thoroughly that it's almost like a lesson on the various aspects of instrument production free of charge! We brought home two violins to play for a week and ended up buying the violin hand-crafted by Samantha. The sound is so beautiful and price is very competitive relative to local competitors. In addition to a wide selection of violins, violas and cellos, they also have all the accessories you need for your instrument. Highly recommended and this will be our to-go place for all our future instrument needs!"

Stephen Y: "Estefan and Samantha are a power couple with years of knowledge and expertise, apparent in every interaction. Samantha figured out the source of a troublesome buzz on my cello and repaired the issue with expert care. After gluing the crack, she retouched the varnish so well that I couldn’t tell the damage was ever there. Estefan helped me find supplies I’ve been searching for at reasonable prices, and informed me of their Instrument Care and Maintenance workshops for my Orchestra students. Overall, Estefan and Samantha are organized, professional, genuine, and highly skilled at what they do. I appreciate the fair prices and warm customer service. I’m looking forward to working with them again!"

Ty: "Such great service and hospitality. My instrument sounds great and I'm happy that the process was smooth."

Mary B: "We’ve been honored to know Estefan and Samantha for several years now.. their knowledge and talent are incomparable!! They have helped my daughter choose her cello and her now. Estefan was my daughter’s first teacher, and she still considers his advice to be the final say in everything related to string instruments! Just can’t say enough great things about this amazing couple."

Terri A : "Estefan is an awesome cello teacher. He brings his passion and expertise of music and the cello to the lessons and shares it with his students. Estefan always made me feel comfortable and confident in my efforts to play the cello. I appreciated his positive praise and encouragement."

Ryan B : "Estefan is a wonderful teacher and any student of his is lucky to have him! I went in wanting to learn how to play violin starting at the end of high school and I definitely got what I came in there for. 10/10!"
