the experience has been great! All the best - Adelino Pereira, Portugal
Hello Lemuel, I wanted to take a moment and thank you and compliment you on the top quality finger board provided. It is perhaps the best quality fingerboard on any of my violins!
I put it on a 1880-1900 German or Czech trade instrument which my grandfather brought over from Czechoslovakia with him when he came to this country.
He was not a man of means and he cherished this violin and it is the only possession of his I have. This is the remaining piece for my restoration!
Thank you for your quality components! Best - Rob Mokry, CA, USA

I also appreciate the quality of professional service I received
from Lemuel violins. The instrument was exactly as you represented
it to be and your service was fast and prompt and any questions
I had were answered quickly and completely in a timely manner.
I want to thank you for a great service and a great product. It
was certainly a pleasure doing business with your company. I most
certainly look forward to doing business with you in the future
and I will recommend your company to others. -John Holotko,
Hello, just a quick note, order to follow. I purchased restoration
supplies from you and they worked really well. The two violins
I restored are beautiful and play like a dream great sound from
both though very different. I just wanted to thank you. I will
send a picture of the two violins: they are both from my family,
one from 1770 and one from 1820. both had delaminated in several
places and looked very bad. but the books and restoration supplies
produced very beautiful and playable violins. My most sincere
and hearfelt thanks. - John Wright, Hatfield, USA
Received the books , drawings and parts today in exellent condition.
The bass drawings are very accurate and easy to read. The bass
setup and repair book surely fill a gap for any repair person
on double basses. Highly recommended. Thank you for very good
service, friendly and quick communication and rapid shipment.
Best regards - Jan A Sjåstad (luthier), Norway
Lemuel made actual measurements on the diameters of Wittner tuning
pegs in stock, in order to determine the correct size for my need
based on the peg hole diameters which I furnished. Lemuel gave
directions and cautions regarding the use of the reamer used to
modify the existing hole peg hole diameters as needed to accommodate
the Wittner tuning pegs. Lemuel provided expedited handling and
shipping of articles I purchased. Lemuel was as helpful as is
possible giving data by telephone to an individual new to the
specifics of violins. I am very thankful to have found Lemuel
Violins by way of the Internet.
Thank you - George Yankura, USA
Lemuel, In my opinion,Lemuel Violins are the greatest discovery
since sliced bread. Their blend of professionalism with the personal
touch is a double stop that will certainly keep me coming back.
- Xiled Scot, PEI , Canada
I have got a percel on last Saturday. And I have played violins
and viola every day. These chinrests are very fit me and my instruments.
I have listened very nice sound from there and have been supported
by these chinrests. It is very satisfying result.
So I wish to express my gratitude to you. - Shinobu Nakayama,
Thank you very much for spending time on the telephone discussing
and advising me on the most suitable strings for my early eighteenth
century Tyronean violin. The Pirastro Obligato strings that you
recommended are fantastic and have breathed a new life into my
violin and are excellent for the Irish music that I play. -
John, Oakville, Ontario, Canada
| Receive my order. Excellent luthier tools. Shipping
by Canpar is the fastest i ever seen. It is really worth the extra
few dollars. Thanks - A. Pariseau, Quebec, Canada
I always really appreciated ordering from Lemuel Violins. Always
had a great follow-up. Fine tonewood provider! -
Bellefeuille Violons, Gatineau, Canada
I have had several pieces of violin wood sent to me from Lemuel
violins. It has always arrived in good condition and as ordered.
Their web site is one of the best I have seen in giving information
regarding the grading and age of the timber. Lemuel has also gone
to a lot of trouble to assist me with my extra enquires. I have
used Canada Post Air Mail for delivery and found them very prompt.
- Bob White, Australia.
My package of plans and the Reference Book arrived last week
in perfect condition, a couple of weeks earlier than I was anticipating!
I am most impressed with your your prompt replies to my questions
and your delivery. A quick look through the contents tells me
I will enjoy many hours constructing my double bass. I will be
back in touch when I get to the fittings required for completion.
- Trevor Corlett NSW Australia.
| Dear Lemuel,
The package arrived today,everything was inside and in perfect condition.
You are a very cooperative/supporting/friendly seller. Excellent
international transaction,thank you very much! Best regards - David
I have nothing but, praise for Lemuel Violins. I received
the 'spirit' varnishes (red, brown & primer) 2 weeks ago and
the varnishes have worked most excellently...the information on
your web site gave me the confidence to re-varnish my 32 year
violin (the original varnish was cracked and in many places the
wood was exposed). The violin looks great now and in my opinion
-sounds 'better' than ever. The sound post, sound post setter
and inspection mirror is of excellent quality and when my sound
post needs adjusting or, replacing I will be able to do this myself
instead of having to drive all the way to the violin shop to get
this done (saving me both time and $$$). The Arcos Brazil 'silver'
bow is outstanding and draws a powerful, deep and rich sound which
my old bow did not. I am very grateful you took the time to try
out all the bows in your inventory to find me the one with the
weight and bow maker I specified. Thank you, very much for your
excellent customer support and high quality products. - David
O., Hawaii, USA
I picked up the order today it had arrived in good order;
this evening I installed the parts and restored my bow to operational
status. I would recomend your company to anyone looking for parts.
Your service was prompt and professional.
Thank you. - Claude Dupont, Alberta, Canada
This is just a little note to say thank-you for your prompt
and professional service. All your products and tools have been
first-rate quality at very reasonable prices and always seem to
be shipped out in a timely fashion. I also appreciate the fact
that you follow up with an e-mail or phone call if there is a
potential problem with my order (out of stock, for example) instead
of letting me wait for weeks and then have to call myself, as
I've had to do with many other businesses. It's nice to be treated
as a valuable customer! Feel free to use this on your testimonial
page! Thanks again, Lemuel! - A. Gillies, British Columbia,
''We received the bass this morning, strung it up, and he

you're a calm person on the phone, very quick delivery, and an
overall beautifully crafted, beautiful sounding instrument ! Alright
thanks again for everything Lemuel, you've been very good to us.''
Have yourself a great day, and thanks again. - Mario Tremblay,
Just a quick note to let you know how much I am enjoying my new
upright bass. Thank you for all of your patience in answering
my many questions. I really appreciate the extra efforts you took
to give me the straight facts so I could make wise and informed
choices. You listened carefully to my likes/dislikes to help me
find the right instrument, then collaborated with your excellent
luthiers to ensure everything was set up just right. The bass
played great right out of the box and I can't get enough of the
rich, soulful sounds that it makes. Finding the perfect instrument
should not have been this easy, but it was. Thanks again, and
you can definitely count me as one very happy customer - Richard
Snow, Innisfil, Ontario, Canada

surely will use your services again. You can supply to South Australia
faster and of better quality and price than Australian wholesalers.
