Violin and Viola Making & Commissions


Rodger has been making violins and violas since the age of 14, when he made his first one.  The passion he developed at this young age has continually grown over the past 50 years and he has become a Master Luthier. Robert is also making a violin, to be completed this fall.

Restoration & Repair


Restoration of fine professional and antique instruments is a major part of the work of our violin shop.  Literally hundreds of instruments pass through our hands every year and our loyal customers bring or send us their precious instruments from all over the United Stated and internationally.  Both Rodger and Robert have studied with some of the worlds finest makers and restorers.  They also do instrument repair, every thing from the most basic student repairs to the most complex.

What Our Clients Say



"Rodger Stearns beautifully brought back to life my beautiful Remy violin that had been maliciously defaced and broken. Most thought the violin could never look good though repaired, however, that was not the case. The restoration brought the violin back to its original beauty and tone quality. I have been grateful to know such a fine craftsman as Rodger Stearns."

"Brought back to life..."
(Dr. John Enyart)
