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.

The shop has excellent set-ups in their mid-range violins, as our teacher noted on the violin we took home on trial. The whole shop has... More

It is rare to have genuine trio of Professionalism, Friendship and Longevity. This is why we all have been coming back to David for years. Lena, Miremonde Arts.

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.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. 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. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
