While changes have swept across Glenwood South over the past decade, Montgomery Violins has been a staple in the community since 1983.
“At that time, the Raleigh-Durham area was rated very highly, though in retrospect, I’ll say it was just the beginning of what makes this area good,” Proprietor John Montgomery has said. “It was a pretty ripe area to practice violin-making.”
Montgomery’s knowledge and love of stringed instruments and classical music cannot be challenged. On top of running the repair store, he is also one of the luthiers in charge of helping maintain stringed instruments located in both the Smithsonian and Library of Congress. If you’re looking for a world-class restoration of an old family heirloom or you’re a local musician who needs a quick repair before a gig, look no further than John Montgomery Violins.
