We are a full service violin shop that specializes in the sales and support of violins, violas, cellos and bows.

Olsen Violins was established in 1999 in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Washington by Sten Olsen. Since that time, our growing success has been based on the simple principle of providing the best sounding instruments to players of all ages and skill levels at competitive rates. It’s our own small shop, so we strive to make the experience fun, informative, and successful for everyone. If you enjoy the process, then we enjoy the process, and when we work together we like to think that we become your violin shop, too.
