At BVS, we take the customer experience seriously -- that means providing support before, during, and after the sale.

Once you buy a bass from us, you become part of the family.

I have never

played a bass set up by the Bass Violin Shop that did not play great. Their sense of nuance, attention to player needs, and dependability, make them the only people I use in this whole region.  If I am willing to drive 4 hours each way, that simply speaks for itself.  From basic setup to major repairs, I have never been disappointed.

I rented my first

bass from Bob. I bought my first bass from Bob. He and the whole BVS team have never disappointed in their craftsmanship, detail, and advice. I'll be proud to shop at the shop as long as it's here!

I have been

a customer and fan of Bob Beerman and the Bass Violin shop for over 20 years. In that time I have purchased my beloved (and much used) Czech bass as well as basses for my daughters from the BVS. The repair work they do is second to none anywhere in the world and one should have total confidence in choosing the BVS. No matter how big or small the repair, they will amaze you.

Just a word to say

how much I'm enjoying the bass, sounding better than I ever remember, which is saying something. I'm touched by the evident and thorough care you put into the work, and delighted with the way it looks and feels. I can't keep my hands off it.

Thanks again

for the incredibly timely repair. The bass plays great and sounds huge with the new post and tailpiece!

Over the past few years

I've had the privilege of dealing with Bob and the Bass Violin Shop for repairs, selling, and purchasing basses. In every area, I have always been very satisfied with the professionalism, knowledge, and personal touch of the staff at BVS. I continue to make the drive to Greensboro because I trust them and continue to enjoy their service.

I have to tell you

how thrilled I am with the way my Prescott came out of your shop. I also must say your work is as good as any I have seen anywhere in this country. How fortunate we are here in NC to have you cats around. I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and impeccable skill. Much peace.

I have been a 

customer of Bob's for ten years. During that time I've purchased two basses from him. I take them to the shop a few times a year so Bob and his team can keep them playing and sounding great.

Thanks for everything Bob!

Bob performed a

first rate restoration on my turn of the century Austrian bass. Bob fixed a nasty hole in the lower bout so well that even I forget it was there! ... Plus, he did a first rate fingerboard dressing. He did all of this and more in a timely manner and at an affordable price! I can not recommend Bob highly enough. All of my repair work goes to Greensboro!

Because of Tony's

fine work, the Zamberti has become the bass I always thought it could be!
