Our Vision

Atlantic Strings was born with the idea that all players of bowed stringed instruments – Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass – need a customer-focused shop that is part of their local community and dedicated to addressing their specific needs for professional advice, great variety of quality instruments (for sale, lease, or rent-to-own), bows, accessories, music, repairs, and restorations. We carry everything that makes playing these wonderful instruments fun and enjoyable. We are also committed to supporting you and making your shopping/playing experience the best that it can be.

Superior Quality

Our owner, Allen Gatchell, is a professional luthier and our staff is made up of luthiers, restoration specialists, and musicians. No matter what your need, we can help. All of our violins, violas, cellos, and basses are made of the finest materials with superb hand-craftsmanship. Before you receive your instrument, we take great care in its setup and final adjustment. In fact, this is done in our shop to ensure great sound, playability, and outstanding value. Nothing leaves our store that has not met our exacting standards of quality, and our customers have noticed. In fact, they think so much of us and our store that they have voted us #1!

Huge Selection

We have traveled all over the world in search of the best quality instruments at the most reasonable prices. As a result, Atlantic Strings offers exceptional stringed instruments that have the best combination of craftsmanship, materials, and quality. Our pursuit has taken us to Romania, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria, China, and Italy. It is in these places that we have found the highest quality modern and antique violins, violas, cellos, and basses at the best prices, and we have brought these instruments home for you.
