Comprehensive luthier services

Located in the vibrant heart of Amsterdam, we’re uniquely situated to provide a variety of crucial services for our local music community. We offer fine old and new instruments for sale, expert repairs, a complete compliment of strings, accessories and cases, as well as insurance appraisals and dendrochronology (the scientific method of determining the age of wood by its rings). If you’re just starting out on your musical journey, we provide affordable bow and instrument rentals as well. Additionally, we act as a central hub where student musicians can connect with teachers and get the latest updates on important local events.
