About VSI

Through an extensive network of makers and dealers in the US and Europe, Vogel Stringed Instruments, Inc. can source fine violins, violas and cellos and their bows that will give players years of service at prices that match the players’ abilities and means.

I offer comprehensive services to violinists, violists and cellists. I will bring instruments to you personally for examination and audition, and service them with maintenance, set-up and repairs.

Among the makers I am currently representing are Robert Brewer Young, Ulrich Hinsberger, Giancarlo Acieri, Christopher Ulbricht, Theodore Skrekel, Jason Starkie, Julia Sarano, and bow makers Morgan Andersen and Evan Orman.
