About Johnson String Instrument

Johnson String Instrument has served the Greater Boston string-playing community since 1976. With the acquisition of Carriage House Violins in 2013, we form New England’s largest string company, together with our Guitar & Bass Shops.

We are one of the first and most prominent Internet resources for string players, offering a vast selection of books, sheet music, Suzuki materials, cases and accessories, as well as electric stringed instruments, acoustic fretted instruments (guitars, mandolins, ukuleles, and banjos), and double basses for sale, plus violins, violas, cellos, and double basses for rent on johnsonstring.com.

Our extensive collection of violins, violas, cellos, and bows available for purchase can be viewed at carriagehouseviolins.com, the website of our bowed-instruments sales division.
