Johnson String Instrument: We have served the Greater Boston string-playing community since 1976 and are New England's largest violin shop. We are one of the first and most prominent internet resources for string players.

Our contacts are extensive. Our instruments are acquired from a variety of local and international sources, including the major auction houses, collectors, private sale, and consignment.

Our services are comprehensive. We perform instrument restorations and repairs, as well as bow rehair and repair. We also provide appraisals for instruments purchased from Johnson String. In addition, we maintain the most complete and reliable rental program in the country. We stock an extensive selection of books, sheet music, Suzuki materials, cases and accessories—some exclusive to JSI.

Our instruments are exceptional. We have a dedicated staff of professional players and violin makers that selects each and every instrument and bow we offer. This means that everything from the construction of the instrument to the resonance of the E string is evaluated with careful, experienced eyes and ears.
