“Rafael Carrabba completely transformed my cello! The nearly 200 year old instrument was passed down to me by my grandfather Dr. Robert Popper, who smuggled it out of Austria in 1938 just weeks before Kristallnacht. It was in need of major surgery for a very long time. When I got the cello back, not only was it in absolute pristine condition, but it sounded many times more rich and vibrant. Honestly, I had no idea the cello was ever capable of sounding this fantastic, and every day I am more and more impressed by it. Mr. Carrabba and his fellow craftsmen are truly magicians, and extremely courteous and helpful." ~ John-Henry Crawford 

"Rafael and his team have worked on and set-up four different very fine instruments for me (including a Vuillaume and a Stradivari), each time with the best success in sound quality, projection, and playability. In addition to the ultra-accommodating and very rapid expert service that I have personally received every time I have visited, they have been very generous with their time, reasonable with pricing, and respectful in all of their dealings. I love this shop, and wish I could take them everywhere with me! Bravi tutti to Rafael and all the staff at Carrabba Violins!" ~ Robert deMaine
