Moar Orchestral Strings

Our in-house line of antiqued string instruments are made from high quality European maple and spruce. In the tradition of fine instrument making,the top and back plates of each Moar instrument are individually graduated to varying interior thicknesses and are finished with a multi-layered oil varnish. This varnish gives a beautiful antiqued patina which emulates the look of the old masters and results in gorgeous-looking and rich-sounding instruments. We currently carry a variety of violins, violas, cellos and basses.
