We offer Old World Style for the 21st Century. The violin business is built on family, all the way back to the Amati, Guarneri and Stradivari families. Here at Classic Bows Violin Shop, we're a family business and we deal with many companies that are also family businesses. On our travels to Europe we visit with the French, Italian, English and German shops that have inspired us to carry on their Old World traditions. Gregory Gohde has been a musician for forty years, having played in numerous bands and orchestras. His ancestors were in the music business in Southern Italy, repairing and selling mandolins in the late 1800's.
