My approach to inventory is one I learned from my father. It may sound simple, but it is based upon acquiring characteristic examples by well known makers. Quality over quantity. I believe in offering instruments and bows that I would want to own myself, with a forward looking lens knowing that once they pass through my hands it is my responsibility to see that they are well taken care of and that they perform at their best.
The following is a glimpse at some of the current inventory for sale. If you do not see what you are looking for, please inquire the inventory changes frequently and many items for sale are not published due to the discretion of our clients. At the moment we currently have examples from Stradivari, Guarneri, Bergonzi, Rogeri, Ruggeri, Grancino, Gagliano, and others for sale.
Additionally, our bow inventory has quickly and quietly become one of the best. Offering the best bows by Tourte, Peccatte, Persoit, Simon, Henry, Voirin, Sartory, Maline, Ouchard, and others. Please contact us today!
