Quality String Instruments, Cases, Bows and Accessories
Luthier Tools and Supplies

For musicians (student and professional)

Quality handmade string instruments and related accessories.

Some have inquired about how to choose a violin. You may want to read this helpful article on buying a violin. Although the article tailors to violins, the same concepts apply to other string instruments.

There is certainly a world of difference between an instrument made by machine and one made by hand. Our string instruments are handcrafted by a number of well established makers including Samuel and Andreas Eastman, Ivan Dunov, Albert Nebel, Rudoulf Doetsch, Wilhelm Klier, and Frederich Wyss, and Heffler Klaus. These instruments represent some of the best in tonal quality and craftmanship.

When you purchase an instrument from us, we have professional well-established luthiers to set up your instrument for performance.

For instrument makers (apprentices and luthiers) - Quality tools and supplies and educational materials for making and restoring string instruments.

All products are reasonably priced. We guarantee everything that we sell.

Please Email us if you have any questions or comments, or if you would like our advice. If there are products that you do not see listed, please inquire. We are here to provide personal service to you. We are also committed to keep customer information confidential.

Hi Lemuel,
Just a quick note to let you know how much I am enjoying my new upright bass. Thank you for all of your patience in answering my many questions. I really appreciate the extra efforts you took to give me the straight facts so I could make wise and informed choices. You listened carefully to my likes/dislikes to help me find the right instrument, then collaborated with your excellent luthiers to ensure everything was set up just right. The bass played great right out of the box and I can't get enough of the rich, soulful sounds that it makes. Finding the perfect instrument should not have been this easy, but it was. Thanks again, and you can definitely count me as one very happy customer. -
