When string players achieve the level of artistry that demands the very best instruments and bows, we are here to offer the finest instruments by renowned modern makers as well as rare and antique American, French, English and Italian Instruments.
Matching a highly-skilled musician to the right instrument or bow is an art form. Our experienced fine instrument consultants work closely with each client in order to find the instrument and/or bow to best fit their specific needs and playing styles.
