I absolutely love my Frirsz viola, and since I’ve owned it my playing has been boosted immensely. Every time I have come to Nick or Thomas in the shop they have shown the highest level of care and knowledge about my viola! Highly recommended to string players looking for quality service and instruments.
I went to Sixth Generation Violin with a dire crack down the middle of my viola. Thomas Dunn restored my damaged viola back to its former self and also encouraged me to contact him with any questions I had throughout the process. He was so kind and worked extremely hard to make sure I was happy with the work that was done. I will be returning in the future!
I am so glad I found Sixth Generation Violins in Saratoga! Summers in the Adirondacks can get so humid and my violin requires extra attention when that happens. Tom has helped me and my students at Luzerne Music Center so many times during the summers when our instruments get finicky. His expertise, attention to detail, and great personality are unparalleled. I always look forward to visiting his shop!
The tailpiece I bought made my violin sound amazing. It sounded good before, but I wanted to try it after I read the reviews. It was such an improvement, that I'm definitely ordering one for my viola right away.
Awesome customer service, great value for the cost, and I love my cello upgrades, including the genius Frirsz tailpiece!!
Thanks for taking care of the Red Mendelssohn Strad!
