I saw the advertisement of Johann Strings violin on line and I think you are selling it at a very reasonable price, that’s why I bought one for my daughter. I will keep you posted regarding my daughter’s development in the violin lesson.

Thank you so much and God bless you!


Sincerely yours,

Ms. Maithri bought a student grade violin


Johann Strings offers up close and personal service. Buying a violin from him is like or accustomed to buying one from an old school ‘European’ studio.

He did the scaling for me, tuned it up, showed the basics and I felt that on the whole, the purchase was worth it.

Buying a violin is a lifetime thing, with maintenance on the way and Johann Strings definitely makes me want to come back again.

I was introduced to Johann Strings by a friend. I first met Ms. Ho and she is warm and helpful. I get to know a lot of information from her. Through the conversation which lasted for more than an hour or so, it lets me have a better understanding of violins & music. Today, the New Year Day, I finally got to know the man behind it, Swee Kwang. We exchanged some ideas on buying old violins. I can see than he is a serious restorer, the finishes were done well with all the fine details. I would recommend my friends if they want a good job done & also value for money for the instruments.

A very pleasing experience to be serviced by Swee Kwang. Very patient and understanding and willing to help. Even with a young questioning student. Thank you.

I am really new to violin i.e expose to violin for merely 2 weeks! and needed all the genuine help and advices I could get. By chance via Google, I found JS and their accessories pricing are really attractive. I bought my 1st Dominant String (Atas brand!) from JS and Swee Kwang is kind to help restring, tune and oil the pegs without extra charges! Totally NO hidden costs, unlike my experience@ Yxxxxx PS! He even shares his experiences and show me some know-hows without reservation whenever I have questions. He certainly knows his stuffs and bothers to reply my SMS to him. He even accommodates my timing by extending his shop hours on 3rd day of CNY (I am so touched!)! Most importantly, he never hard-sell and I do not feel pressurize to buy anything. He actually earnestly advised customers to retain their instrument than recommend to increase sales. Furthermore, he does not look-down on handling my cheap violin, during point-of-sales and knowing my tight budget. His little workshop cum shop and his persona really make one feels cozy and yet professional without any corporate steel front. Keep up the good work, JS! Highly Recommendable!

Awesome service by Mr Lim. Quality violins at very reasonable prices :) Bought my first beginner student violin here!


Jaclyn Ee, Nov 2011


I first stumbled upon this shop in Sunshine Plaza. I still remembered that when I first stepped in, I felt like I got transported to a cozy homely violin shop set in a small community. The experience here is very unique - the owner Swee Kwang tries to know each of his customers well to build good lasting relationships. It is definitely not commercialized unlike most other music shops. One can tell Swee Kwang really puts his heart and soul into helping others, be it starting violinists or experienced veterans. I will fully recommend Johann Strings to anyone needing violin services.

I had 2 violas 'cleaned up' - the process involved a general polish of the instruments as well as minor varnish touch-ups. Swee Kwang was indeed patient, meticulous, gave helpful professional advice and the results were much better than I had imagined. Above all, he gave superb service, and this personal connection ensures that I will continue visiting Johann Strings, as well as recommend it to anyone else looking to fulfill their strings / instrument needs!

Hi SK, it was nice meeting you in your lovely shop last week. Thank you for your 1st class treatment of my cello, as well as the valuable advices for a beginner in string instrument! I also enjoyed the Melos rosin and Chromcor strings - I'm so happy I can't stop playing! :)
