I began playing violin two years ago when I accepted a strings position in a few states away from home. Having been a band teacher in my previous years, I could not imagine trying to teach something that I could not play. I basically spent the next year learning violin, viola, cello, and bass. Yes, I am that guy. I try to play everything and do well enough to stay beyond most of my students. I have upgraded my viola recently, about two months ago.

Our violin making process has taken significant leaps forward over the last few years. We bring the benefits of plate tuning and plate matching to the production environment, giving you instruments that are rich in tone and beautiful to look at. From Stradivari to Tertis, we offer a broad selection of sizes and tonal flavors for the discerning violist. Our cellos are based on Gofriller and Stradivari patterns, in varying levels from student to professional. We have also introduced a small pattern Gofriller in seven eights size. The following accessories are available to our dealers only.
