Whether you are in the market for an instrument, find yourself in need of a repair or restoration… or simply have an appreciation for the violin family, its music or the art of violin making… these pages will hopefully be of interest and provide you with some information about me, my background and violin making in general. So feel free to browse…but most of all please contact me with any questions you might have. Personalized service, tailored to each individual player and instrument is of utmost importance to me and essential in this field. A website cannot address your unique situation, so tell me about that certain sound you’re looking for…or that red violin…or what happened to your cello…
…and keep in mind, “The only stupid question is the one not asked!”

Thanks again for visiting and keep on playing…

The Eggen Violin Shop is centrally located near downtown Denver in a beautiful, refurbished 1880’s Victorian home. The showroom and workshop are located on the first floor, with two private and comfortable practice rooms for trying instruments on the second floor. The workshop of world class bowmaker and professional cellist Evan Orman is also located on the second floor.

“A wide range of response and consistent sound quality are musts for the professional string player. Beauty and superb craftsmanship are additional reminders that Rock Eggen is a master luthier alive and producing today.”

Arthur Knebel
Former violinist/violist in major orchestras such as the Denver, Dallas, and St. Louis Symphonies
