"I’ve purchased several instruments from Loveland Violins over the years, and always felt I was treated fairly and honorably. I keep coming back not just because the prices are reasonable and the service is excellent, but because Mick Loveland has an extraordinary ability to adjust instruments for optimum sound and playability."

− Rich Heinberg

"I have been sending fiddle students to Mick Loveland for the last 15 years. Not only is Mick a great guy and easy to work with but he truly understands the difference between a fiddle and a violin. So many of my students have found their dream fiddle at Mick's shop. And just this year my wife, who is also a full time fiddle teacher, bought her new fiddle from Mick too!"

− Chad Manning

"The Loveland family and staff treated me with great care and and I continue to take my business to them for all my violin needs."
