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.
