Violins under $3,000

(Priced under $3,000 & Popular Brands)

Johnson String Instrument enjoys special relationships with some of the top stringed instrument workshops in the world. We travel regularly to view the working conditions, materials, tools and craftsmanship of the most talented makers, and to hand-select the very best of these completely handmade instruments.

These instruments are then carefully inspected by JSI's own luthiers who perform precision set-ups to maximize sound quality and playability. Many of these quality shopmade instruments are available in smaller sizes and outfits at substantial savings. Additional savings on our full selection of high-quality bows and cases when you create your own outfit.
