Established in 2009, Bloomington String Instruments is southern Indiana’s premiere full-service violin shop specializing in restoration and repair of fine violin, viola, cello and bass instruments.
Repair & Restoration
We believe that your instrument is an art machine, something more than a tool to make music or an objet d’art. Accordingly, we provide a full range of repair and restoration services that maximize sound quality and projection while making sure that your instrument never looks its age.
We know that to achieve top sound quality your bow is at least as important as your instrument. We use the best horsehair available and our rehair appointments fill up quickly so make sure to schedule your appointment today.

Browse our online gallery of selected available instruments and make an appointment to come by and see us. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Give us a call, not all instruments and bows are shown on this page.
We strive to find an instrument and bow that is right for each player. Whether you’re a globe trotting professional or an advancing student, don’t be shy, give us your specifications for a custom handmade instrument or tell us what qualities you’re trying to find.
