Virginia's Best Prices and Largest Inventory

Here at Foxes, we're dedicated to getting you the best instruments at the very best prices (just check around) and with the best rental program around, you'll save money even if you're not yet ready to buy. We also have a nice selection of carefully selected professional instruments for teachers and orchestra players.
All of our new models are at least 30% off! We're able to offer these discounts with the large volume of instruments that we buy, but we also maintain the intimate environment akin to that of a smaller string shop. Plus, if you're a Foxes renter, you can use your rental credit* to get extra discounts on any of our fine instrument selection. Need to upgrade later? 100% Trade-In is guaranteed on any orchestral string instrument purchased from Foxes Music Company**
Our instruments are hand selected by knowledgable staff and professionally set up and adjusted by our luthier so they're ready to play right away. All new instruments come with a lifetime warranty!
Take out up to two violins and four bows for a 7 day trial with no deposit required (we take a credit card number and picture ID). It gives you time to contemplate a purchase without pressure and will allow you to show your teacher the instruments.
Thinking of investing in a smaller sized violin? We have the most generous trade-in policy anywhere. Have an instrument that you didn't buy here? We'll take those on trade also. Just make an appointment to have it assessed.
