Love this place. Honest, Knowledgeable, patient, affordable and instruments are well kept and serviced. I've used them for 10 plus yrs on and off and 3 kids later. Several times they have gone out of their way to help someone. They are a pillar to this community.

Staff is very helpful. My daughter bought her violin from here and we have been very pleased.

Went with absolutely zero knowledge of viola. Came out with two rented violas for me and my son for very affordable rates. The rates are fair for the amount of service they have done on each instrument. The sales man was very friendly and deserves a thumbs up for his patience with us.

It was a quick experience. My 5th grader was sized and fit for a viola and they had everything that was on the list from her orchestra teacher. Reasonably priced and easy 1 time payment for the school year.

I did not purchase or rent an instrument here but I went with an adult student to try out instruments because she is interested in purchasing a violin. We were taken into an exquisitely decorated room that reminded me of getting fitted for a bridal gown. An entire wall was covered with violins, as well as some tastefully displayed on large custom built-in shelving on another wall. I was able to play several instruments and the young man helping us was very knowledgeable about string instruments and very helpful. If I were to purchase an instrument I would definitely go to Arlington Strings. They also offer competitively priced student rental and step-up student rental outfits.

It's great for me...(a second year strings student). Very positive people and environment and so welcoming. If you are a beginner on strings or even an expert abs has something to offer.

We first rented from ABS when our daughter was in elementary playing the violin. Now our son is in elementary and playing the cello.We never thought of going anywhere else. They really know their stuff there. They always make you feel welcome and are genuinely helpful and patient.So far this year, my son has managed to have the bridge fall over off his cello twice. I felt so bad that something had happened, but they quickly had it back together and tuned up. When I inquired about how much I owed, they told me it was part of the rental.I am a happy customer and recommend them highly.

The employees are so friendly and dedicated to helping you find what you need. I came in 30 minutes before closing time to get fitted for a chinrest. I thought it would take 20 minutes... it ended up taking my picky self an hour. The owner was so dedicated, he stayed 30 minutes past closing time just to help me find my new chinrest that I love so much. They were very patient and didn’t rush me at all. He even decided trade my old chinrest for the new one for free! I highly recommend coming here.

Very helpful and courteous staff! They offer great advice to you whether you're making a purchase from them or not! They care more about helping people than they do about simply making a dollar or two. Go visit them! You won't be disappointed!
