Welcome to Kolstein’s

Welcome to the online home of Kolstein Music, Inc. and Kolstein & Son, Ltd. – your source for violin, viola, cello and bass instruments, repairs, rentals and accessories.

The Samuel Kolstein Violin Shop was founded by Samuel Kolstein in 1943 as a Violin and Bow making establishment in Brooklyn, New York. Now on Long Island, over 60 years later, Kolstein’s has built a proud reputation for quality, craftsmanship and expertise in both the manufacture and repair of a whole range of stringed instruments, and has expanded to a staff of twelve experts in restoration, marketing and production.

A look in our Media Area will give you video of just a small sampling of the renowned professionals who we’re proud to be affiliated with.

We feature a fine selection of violins, violas, cellos and basses, as well as as well as a full line of bows, cases and accessories.
