Violins and Accessories

We carry not only our own line of violins, ranging from quality student instruments to handcrafted pieces, but also violins by Calin Wultur, Core Select, and Heinrich Gill.

Our goal is not to have the greatest number of violins in St. Louis, but rather to have the best range of violins in all sizes.

Violas and Accessories

While at first glance a viola appears to simply be a “slightly larger violin”, those who know and appreciate violas know that they are so much more! First crafted by Andrea Amati in the 16th century, violas have become a necessary part of any orchestra.

We carry our own line of violas, ranging from quality instruments for a beginner all of the way up to beautiful hand-crafted pieces. We also carry violas by Core Select and Heinrich Gill.

Cellos and Accessories

The cello. What isn’t there to love about cellos? They comprise a goodly amount of the depth of an upright bass and the ability (for those with a fine touch and well-developed ears) to carry high notes as well. Yo-Yo Ma is credited with introducing the cello to many in this day and age, and it’s an instrument we have enjoyed for decades.

We have our own full line of cellos, from instruments for a beginner all of the way to hand-crafted pieces for an advanced cello player. We also carry Core Select cellos.

Upright Basses and Accessories

The bass. The best (oops, we meant to say “biggest”) of the stringed instruments. We love upright basses. A number of us play the bass (regular gigs, too!) and Ted, one of our co-owners who works in the workshop, has even built a few.

We carry a full line of standup basses in a variety of sizes. Of course, the smaller basses are primarily student basses, while the full-size or nearly full-size basses are generally of premium quality. In addition to our own line of basses we also have a selection of consignment basses.
