‘Tis the season!
Though the holidays are supposed to be a time to slow down and spend time with family, it is most often very stressful when you realize you have to clean the house, make the food, and find the perfect gift for each person!
Our goal with this gift guide is to help make your holidays a little less stressful. If you have a string player in your life, these gift ideas will aid them in better becoming the musician you know they can be.
Did you know string players have to change their strings regularly? Over time, strings become “dead” and lose their power and vibrance. Violins & violas need to change their strings every 6 months and cellos & bass need to change their strings every year.
The Player’s Care Kit is one of the best, most useful stocking stuffers for musicians. It includes essential accessories like a GVC Instrument Polish, microfiber cloth, Argenta Amber rosin and a performance mute. Bonus items include a $10 off coupon, case tag, and stickers!
Whether your string player is a beginner or advanced, the CFX bows are a great gift option!
- The CFX Braid bows are the perfect everyday bow for the student player. They even come in Red, Purple, and Blue
- The CFX Gold bows are a great option for an intermediate or advancing player. If your string player is advanced, it is a great spare and/or outdoor bow when they don’t want to use their good bow.
- The CFX Premier bow is another great carbon fiber bow for intermediate or advancing players that looks like wood!

Do you know someone who wants to play the violin? Get them started with a quality instrument that will help them succeed in their musical endeavors with a H. Luger CV400 violin outfit, a great value!
Who knew such a small accessory could contribute so much to the sound of the instrument! GVC rosins are of the highest purity rosins which contribute to a clean, clear sound and makes almost no rosin dust. The Argenta Amber rosin with silver flakes has a very clean and quick “bite” with a pure sound and the Dark Colophony rosin tends to get a bit more grip and is good for cello, fiddle and harder playing.
One of our most popular instruments! Whether your student has been playing for a while or you are looking to get them started on an instrument that will take them places, the Stefan Petrov Trista Select is the perfect choice. The bundle comes with a CFX Carbon Fiber Bow which will get a better sound out of the instrument and the lightweight Composite Case will keep your player’s instrument protected.
Did you know the bow can affect the sound just as much as the instrument? A basic bow is not going to allow a fine instrument to speak its best. The Luger Master bows are professional grade Pernambucco bows that are made with premium fittings. With multiple levels of bows from white horn to 14k gold-mount, you’re sure to find the perfect one for your string player.
The GVC composite case is both light-weight and impact resistant and comes in many different colors & patterns. Your musician can leave it plain or decorate it with stickers from their musical adventures!
