Even after four years of traveling around Indiana towns, we are still surprised by the things we find! Biggs Violin Shop would certainly fit into that category. Who knew there would be such a shop right here?

But folks do know. Richard Biggs has built quite the reputation in the thirty plus years that he’s been working with violins and other stringed instruments. People come from miles around in search of his expertise and skill.

Classically trained, Mr. Biggs began his apprenticeship in Chicago, learning the art of making and repairing these instruments. Today, this luthier has clients that range from school kids just getting their start (like our own son) to major symphonies. He has worked on supremely rare and unique violins and has plenty of stories to share!

Inside the home turned violin shop, you’ll find a selection of violins, bows, and cases ready to go! Some of the violins have been made by Richard Biggs himself!

We had the chance to peek into his workshop. It was incredible! I have no idea what I was looking at but seeing violins in different stages of repair as well as the various tools used  to repair or make a violin.

I could have poked around in there all day! But Biggs Violin Shop started to get really busy with folks needing violins–so we knew we had to head out and leave Richard to what he does best.
