“I inherited a painting and a violin which turned out to be a Rembrandt and a Stradivarius. Unfortunately, Rembrandt made lousy violins and Stradivarius was a terrible painter.”

– Tommy Cooper

Which best describes what you're looking to do with your instrument?


You own a violin, viola or cello that is no longer being played. You’re thinking it should go to a better home and you’d like to sell it quickly.


You have a violin that is unique and somewhat valuable that you’d like to sell. You’re in no rush to be compensated, you understand that selling a fine instrument for top dollar can take years. You want to make sure it’s in the hands of a competent string sales professional that has sold hundreds of fine instruments.


You have an instrument that you need to know or be able to document it’s value. It might be for the purpose of insurance, a 3rd party opinion for sale, or you’re just curious. 


You have an instrument that needs some work. Maybe you inherited it or found it in the attic. Or maybe you haven’t touch it in a decade and didn’t realize that it had fallen apart. You’d like a professional estimate for what it needs and how much it would cost.
