Wow, you have some great prices for strings at Fiddlershop or the prices are in Euros wink

However, my violin shopping almost always has a sense of urgency.  I am recently unhappy with Amazon because of frequent cases where delivery is complicated by getting something out of the warehouse.   I might get 4-5 day delivery AFTER they ship it so it takes longer than I thought.

I did not find any info on your DELIVERY INFORMATION page?  How will you handle orders? 

In any case, I've been looking to change suppliers and was looking at Nashville but I know you and that is good business also.  

(Did you ever play ZYEX?)

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Great string prices! I need to stock up...

I have Zyex strings on my SSF and they sound fabulous. Better than Helicores and way better than Dominants on this particular fiddle.

Great looking online shop FM! Looks like you are on your way. Are you going to be drop shipping or holding all the inventory or maybe both?

Thanks guys. I have a lot of work left to get all the products up and fix the categories so that they work properly. Most of the prices have not been set but the specials have been.

I am drop shipping many products but I have invested in D'Addario strings to be competitive. I have 50 sets 60 sets of strings coming to me by Wednesday.

The strings that I drop ship instead will ship directly to the customer but cost me $5 additional for handling 🙁

I'll eventually learn which strings sell the most and stock up on those. If anyone needs a price on a product that I haven't marked down or haven't put up yet, just send me a note at or call Fiddlershop at 954 530-5999
