You Don't Live Omaha? No Problem.

We Ship Nationally and Internationally Every Day!

Viola by William Bartruff

Each week we get calls from around the country from players looking for their next instrument. Some choose to try instruments through our approval process: we are experts at safely shipping instruments around the country. If you choose not to buy one, you ship them back to us after a set approval time.

Other people prefer to travel to Omaha so they can try many more instruments in a short time. Sometimes a quick flight to the heartland can be a cheaper and faster way to look for an instrument. If you decide to come see us, let us know and we will arrange to pick you up at the airport!

Either way, we will continue to listen and fine tune your preferences so we can keep looking if you don't find your instrument.

At A. Cavallo Violins we provide the best, professional service to everyone, whether you are a beginner or seasoned artist. All of our workshop instrments are carefully crafted by hand and individually selected for our shop. Our student instruments are set up with the same care and fine parts that most shops only reserve for the most exquisite instruments. It is our goal to provide the guidance and information you need to maintain and understand your investment.

Faith loves the new carbon fiber bow and is grateful that the strings are much easier to handle since you carved down the bridge. Dr. Lara was very pleased with everything as well. Thanks again and hope you have a great 2017!

I purchased a viola tailpiece and chin rest from A Cavallo Violins on eBay. I sent a message and asked that they be matched as boxwood fittings tend to vary in color. I was very pleased with what I received. I later found some carved pegs and asked if they could be matched to the fittings I had. Buy looking at a photo of my viola they were able to match my fittings dead on perfect. These folks go way beyond the call of duty to please their customers! I will absolutely buy from them again!
