Fine Instruments  

The instruments that represent this segment of our inventory are of the very finest quality.

Knowing that each of these violins, violas, or cellos will some day be in the hands of highly accomplished musicians, and certainly have a profound affect on their lives, is especially gratifying to us. We continually search for exceptional examples of the finest makers.

Our current collection of fine violins, violas, and cellos is comprised of the following makers:
