What makes Kennedy Violins string instruments the best on the market? We purchase each violin directly from the maker – a rare business practice that lowers our cost so we can pass the savings to you. With each violin completely assembled and setup by professional luthiers in our Vancouver, Washington shop, we guarantee that the quality and sound of your violin will be far superior to any other instrument at this price point.
