Adrian was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. A true professional with experience and a quality line up. It was so nice to see and play a variety of higher quality instruments alongside the school level instruments. Excellent!!

Found a violin at my grandparent's house. The bow was broken, and we couldn't figure out how to tune it. When we came here, the worker tuned the violin and worked with us to buy a new bow. I was very happy with the service and definitely recommend if you're looking for a local violin and strings shop.

Picked up a german bass bow and the experience was great. Chris showed me 3 bows, all great. I was allowed to test each bow for as long as I needed with no rush and no pressure to buy. I knew I was getting an authentic bow from a respected german craftsman. And not a factory remake.Very casual and professional...

Stopped in to get my daughters violin fixed and Ronald was really awesome. The store was busy for the morning and Ronald handled everyone super courtesy and friendly. Got to me within minutes of waiting and fixed the violin with ease. Really appreciate it. What a cool store btw. Go check them out.

Bought a full size violin here a few years ago and go in there time to time for strings and other items. Always the best customer service. I gave them a budget for the violin and they stuck within that and found us a beautiful sounding and looking violin.
Holly Vanderbilt
We have two student musicians and have had a fantastic experience renting instruments at Ronald Sachs Avondale. Their rent to own agreement is exactly that. We now own our daughter's cello, with no hidden costs or additional payments. We went in today for a small maintenance need. The manager/co-owner of the shop offered to clean and inspect our instrument on...

Chad Bayes
Our daughter is just starting on the violin and our instructor recommended Mr. Sachs. We couldn't be happier with the experience. He advised us on the size she needed, as well as the violin that would work best to start. His rent to own plan is more than fair & our instructor was impressed with the instrument Mr. Sachs sent...

We upgraded my daughter’s student violin today with Andrew at Ronald Sach’s in Avondale Estates and had the best experience. Andrew was very patient with us. My daughter was nervous to play in front of him but he used multiple techniques to put her at ease which made it an enjoyable experience for her. Andrew did NOT limit us on...

It’s a comfortable feeling knowing you don’t have to travel far for your string needs & questions. The location on castle street is awesome & perfect!! Adrian is an awesome down to earth, easy talking guy. I always point other string players to go here at this point. I Highly recommend this place for string help & needs.

Violin Restoration and Sales in
Atlanta, GA

With our headquarters in Atlanta GA, we have served the local area and throughout the South as a premier violin shop for more than two decades. As a multi-faceted instrument retailer, we specialize in the sale, rental, repair, and restoration of stringed instruments, including the violins, cellos, viola, and bass.

The violin, along with its other cousins is an amazing instrument with many features that determine its worth. These beautiful instruments improve with age. On the other hand, poorly built, inexpensive violins only degrade in performance overtime.

Professional Violin Strings and Repair

As a second generation violin maker with nearly a quarter-century of experience, owner and luthier Ronald Sachs and his team produce superbly crafted stringed instruments and provide exceptional customer service. Our services include professional repair and restoration for violins, basses, violas, cellos, and violin bows.

Instrument Setup and Tonal Adjustment:

We offer tonal adjustments and custom setups to these stringed instruments to optimize their play ability and tone potential.

If the violin, cello, bass, or viola is of fine quality, it has potential to be fully restored. Certain types of repairs are more challenging and costly, but our highly skilled violin repair and restoration professionals can deliver outstanding results. Just bring us your violin or other string instrument and let us determine whether it can be restored.

If you are looking for a cello for sale, string bass for sale, violins for sale, upright bass rental, or violin rental, we have you covered in Atlanta, GA.

For more information about the violin repair, violin rental, bass restoration, and other repair and violin sales we offer at Ronald Sachs Violins, call us today at 770-931-2440 or send us a message through our contact form.
