More detailed information about stringed instruments and the history of violin making.


Every old stringed instrument
has an open-ended story to tell.

Open-ended, because old stringed instruments live on
from generation to generation.

  • Certificates and guarantees on fine violins and every other instrument in our catalogue

  • Certificates and appraisals are an important cornerstone of the confidence you need before you purchase an old stringed instrument.

Expert certificates by J.-F. Raffin, Eric Blot, Hieronymus Köstler and others are included in the price of most higher priced violins and bows.
