The String House, Musical Instruments, Shopping, Rochester, New York

Purchasing a new instrument is an exciting step in your musical journey, but you’ll want to find the right fit. The staff at The String House in Rochester, NY, understands the importance a new instrument will have on your life, which is why their full-service violin shop specializes in pairing musicians of all levels with instruments that match their needs and playing style.

For nearly 50 years, this family-owned musical instrument store has given clients a place to shop for quality violins, violas, cellos, and basses. Friendly and helpful, the staff strives to give customers great service by using their experience and training to guide musicians toward the top choices for them. Although they have strong roots in the Rochester community, they’ve also worked closely with customers worldwide to provide rare instruments and personalized recommendations.

Customers can choose to purchase, trade in, or rent an instrument through The String House. Instrument rentals are great opportunities for trying something new, and, unlike other rental services, these instruments are in excellent condition and meticulously maintained. The String House also offers free estimates for instrument repairs, and you can decide to trade your instrument for a replacement in the shop. The String House upholds a 100%-trade-in policy, which means you’ll be able to exchange your instrument for one that’s of equal or greater value.

With a vast selection of fine, intermediate, and student-exclusive instruments, you’ll find everything you need at The String House—and, if you’re still undecided, you can also purchase an instrument on a trial basis. Call (585) 442-9272 today if you have any questions about buying a violin, viola, or cello, and visit the store’s website for more information about their selection and services. You can also connect with The String House on Facebook to learn about special promotions and new additions to their inventory.
