Built on Tradition

The Holstein Family

Holstein violins was founded by Pierre and Michael Holstein. We’re a family owned and operated business. After many years of testing the market, we have found our favorite workshops, that now make our violins exclusively for us! These shop owners grew up and went to the same Luthier schools with the big brand name providers from China. As these makers have not traveled outside China with their creations (and never competed in the violin society of America), we are able to offer the highest quality instruments at a much lower price than the brand names.

Pierre has over 30 years of professional experience as a violinist, soloist and instructor. He has worked as a concertmaster, section leader and player of full time professional symphony orchestras in the US, Scandinavia, and Asia. He leads our team and overlooks the quality of all the instruments. Backing us up are also extremely skilled luthiers who have worked at famous Violin and Bow shops all over Europe, including Germany, France, and Italy.
