Buying an Instrument
Because we play and perform, we understand when players tell us what they need from their instruments and bows.

Through decades of experience in the trade we have acquired respected expertise on the instruments and bows themselves. We also offer bows in all price ranges including those by the finest French masters.

We believe that every musician deserves a top-quality instrument at a fair price. Everything we do is guided by this principle. We know that our instruments are top-quality because Tim, a former professional violinist, plays every instrument that we consider offering for sale. Finding the perfect instrument is challenging enough without having to worry about whether the price is fair, the attribution correct or the condition report complete. We want to take away these concerns, leaving you to focus on what really matters: sounding your best. Click here to learn how we do this.
