Mike and his violin shop are such a fantastic part of the community and I can not recommend him and his shop highly enough.

The violin’s improvement in tone is a testament to both Mike’s art and his craft, which combine to make an instrument sing.

After Mike worked on it, it was as if I was getting a new fiddle. He will have my business for repairs and maintenance as well as purchases for years to come.

I am the owner of two antique instruments that have been refurbished by Mike, and I couldn’t be more pleased with them. Mike is an artist with a passion for violins that becomes abundantly clear in the product of his work. I couldn’t recommend him more highly. Paul John M. ~ Lakewood, WA
"I would like to make a comment or two regarding my good fortune in locating Burns Violins. Over the past several months I have had numerous repairs/adjustments on my violins at this shop. I could not be more pleased. Mike's work is impeccable, professionally executed, and timely. He has done a range of repairs from routine adjustments to major internal restoration such as sound post patches. Additionally, Mike is a great individual to do business with, genuinely caring about getting your needs/repairs resolved. I would highly recommend anyone located in the South Puget Sound area, or elsewhere for that matter, needing repair on any violin family instrument consider Burns Violins and take the opportunity to meet Mike. I feel confident you will be pleased you did so." JimK
