Betts Workshop Violin, London circa 1820July 2018

I have just bought my second violin from Martin (not that I have any intention of parting with the beautiful Geissenhof, also from him) and from start to finish it has been an enriching, informative and friendly experience. Martin has great integrity and a wealth of knowledge, yet maintains an unpretentious attitude. He has valued and respected my views and been generous with his time in exchanging ideas about the four instruments I tried. There has been no sense of pressure or persuasion to buy the more expensive option – far from it, in fact. His website descriptions use language very accurately and effectively (so as an English teacher, full marks Martin!). All his violins are in impeccable playing order with upfront information about repairs. So, an excellent experience – thank you.
