I am hoping to sell my beautiful cello, so I was thrilled when I came upon this shop by accident. They made a few minor repairs to the instrument and had one of their experts play it; he loved it. Based on his review, they've farmed it out to a number of prospective buyers over the past four months, and... More

As a violin teacher in CT, I rely on David Segal violins for their quality instruments, honest pricing and amazing service for my students. Their efforts enable our students to have better instruments for their study without breaking the bank. Diane is truly a gem!

My daughter is in her 3rd year of Suzuki violin, and we have gotten two violins from David Segal. If you are patient, they will really take their time with you and find the instrument that suits you best. So many violins, repairs done on the spot, old-world craftsmanship, I could go on.

We had a great experience violin hunting for my son's 1st full-size violin here. Diane, the manager, was very accommodating and helpful in the search, and we never felt rushed or pushed in any way.

This place sucked. Nobody should ever come to this place. They shouldn't even be selling instrument with their attitude. They think they know everything, and I don't have problem with that, but don't give the attitude that customer don't know anything.

A great place to buy new and used violins, string, accessories. Very friendly and malleable to my personal needs. I would highly recommend this shop to not only serious musicians but anyone interested in purchasing a violin, viola or cello or upgrading their current instruments or bows.

Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years.
