Brian Reagin, Concertmaster and Solo Violinist - North Carolina Symphony and Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra:
I offer my endorsement and recommendation of Jennifer Creadick as a first-class bow technician. Jennifer has worked on several of my bows,including my James Tubbs and tortoise shell Hill (Barnes), performing rehairs and cosmetic repairs.
I have always found her workmanship to be outstanding and meticulous, and the quality of materials excellent.
We are fortunate indeed to have an artisan of her caliber in our area.
Shara Reihani, PhD. and parent of beginning violinist:
My experience with Chapel Hill Violins and Mrs. Jennifer Creadick has been excellent. I did not have any prior experience with violins and was looking for a good beginner’s violin for my son. Chapel Hill Violins provides a wide range of prices for the instruments; from the rentals for beginners to the high end instruments.
Mrs. Creadick found us a couple of very nice violins and gave us the opportunity to try them out and work with them for a week before making our selection. Even for the beginner violins the instruments are very nice. There is no chance of a bad selection since Mrs. Creadick and her husband choose their instruments with care. I would highly recommend the Chapel Hill Violins to anyone who is looking for a good quality instrument with professional and courteous guidance of the owners.
Dr. Mary Frances Boyce, violin instructor, Chapel Hill, NC:
I am delighted by the responsive and beautiful tone as well as the workmanship of my Jennifer Creadick violin which I have owned and played for 20 years.
I also enjoy the promptness and quality of workmanship of the bow rehairing.
Tina Markley, parent of intermediate violinist:
My family began doing business with Chapel Hill Violins with the purchase of my son's first violin. That was over 6 years ago and we have not wanted to do business with anyone else. Mrs. Creadick has always worked with our family in finding the best violin for our son within our budget. We moved out of state two years ago and even though there is a music shop near us, I continue to choose Chapel Hill Violins for many reasons. No where else will you find such a great selection of fine instruments with the personal care that Mrs. Creadick gives to the students. You can tell she takes great joy in helping a violinist find the best instrument for the budget they set. I like the personal touch that we have received there. I trust Mrs. Creadick in her knowledge of the instruments and her genuine care for families. We will continue to go to Chapel Hill Violins as our son grows as a musician.
Bonnie Stoughton, North Carlolina Symphony:
When my violin bows were in need of some restoration after many years of hard use, I was very fortunate to discover your shop.
The very fine work you've done on my bows has improved their appearance and increased their value.
The hair is excellent.
