Brobst Violin Shop

Brobst Violin Shop, specialists in fine & rare instruments and bows.

Brobst Violin Shop was founded in 1966 by Loren and Gerald Brobst, father and son. Loren was a craftsman of the highest order, and among his many accomplishments, had a career as an industrial engineer in the steel industry before he entered the musical instrument business. Gerald was a violinist in the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. and like his father, was and still is, a superior craftsman. A self-trained violinmaker, restorer, teacher and conductor, Gerald provided the impetus for the company's birth. Together they built upon a foundation of excellence in craftsmanship, high ethical standards, innovation and forthright business practices. Over the years the company has grown from serving local musicians and students to an enterprise with an international clientele. David Brobst is a restorer, maker and connoisseur with a master's degree in fine art for painting and sculpture. Sharon Brobst Barnum is a bowmaker and restorer, as well as a talented singer and violinist, with a degree in musical performance. Graydon Barnum is a connoisseur and manager of business affairs, as well as a talented musician with a degree in music industry. Gerald's wife Emily manages the string music department and is a former string teacher. John Krall is a graduate of the Salt Lake City School of Violinmaking and is a talented maker and restorer. Our family and staff welcomes your business and the opportunity to serve you!
