Master Instruments & Bows
The Remenyi collection of rare master violins, violas, cellos and bows provides a wide choice for the discerning player.
With archives dating back to our founding in 1890, we maintain cumulative records of the thousands of noteworthy instruments that have passed through the house. Our collection includes old, semi modern and occasionally modern instruments from Italy, France, Germany and England.
In keeping with our firm's roots, we specialize in instruments of the Austro-Hungarian school. Makers in Budapest, Vienna, Prague, and smaller centers working during the 19th and early 20th century were skilled copyists of the Italian masters. Their works rival the best of the English, French and Italian makers of the time, and offer excellent value for price on today's market.
To discuss your individual needs it is advisable to schedule an appointment to view and play instruments in our music room at your leisure.
