Welcome to Paul Wargaski Violins 

Our passion lies in creating an environment for musicians who demand superior quality.  My name is Paul, and I am the owner and founder.  In our Chicago studio my colleagues and I create violins, violas, cellos, and double basses for the professional musician and serious student. 

Our Worry Free Rental program provides instruments to students: full sized instruments to adults and smaller instruments to young students who are just starting to explore the world of strings.  Each rental is personally inspected and upgraded to deliver the highest possible performance for the exploring musician.

If you are searching for a one-of-a-kind instrument that enhances your artistic expression, or just looking to get started, please allow us to serve you.
