"Since we've been a KRUTZ dealer, we've sold more of your bowed string instruments than I have, combined across all brands we carried, since I started working here 5 years ago. The tonewoods go from very good to awesome and the setups are top notch. They are honestly the easiest sales I've ever had, because they're that good."

Conner Habib, Gottschalk Music Center, Clovis California


"KRUTZ has really added to the value and quality of instruments we offer. Their instruments consistently look and sound beautiful. They have a dynamite team that is a pleasure to work with."

Reviews & Testimonials about Anton Krutz Instruments

Dear Anton,

Thank you so much for all of your help, time, kindness, and thoughtfulness. I greatly appreciate everything, and I thank you very much. You have a wonderful shop. I really love playing my new "A.K." Violin and it is sounding better and better all the time...

Sincerely,

Dr. Scott Conklin

Anton Krutz Violin

I have been playing the AK violin for almost 2 years now. From the moment I picked it up in the shop, I was in love. It is the most powerful and dynamic instrument I have ever played- regardless of what style of music, it sings or saws beautifully. Besides the confidence I feel at performances with the instrument, almost more compelling is the joy I feel when practicing in a quiet house. It truly takes me to a different place every time I begin a song...

Thank you!

Andrea

A.K. Viola

Emma bought one of your personally made violas and has been playing it hard the last few months. Tonight, she performed a Bach Prelude for an Honors Recital. The viola had wonderful tone and filled the 1000 seat auditorium beautifully. It was powerful and had the bella canto voice singing at the top of its lungs. She also made assistant principal chair for the Omaha Area Youth Orchestra Symphony as a sophomore. She is in love with your instrument and I want to thank you.

By the way, how is the archtop guitar going?

2007 Anton Krutz Violin

This is easily the best modern violin I have ever had the pleasure of playing. The depth of sonority, sweet tone and wide palate of colors inherent to the instrument make it very versatile, suitable for both solo and ensemble performance. It is both powerful and sensitive, and responds equally well to the grittier modern repertoire and the more tranquil and elegant classical pieces. The ease of playing the violin brings out the best in my playing, and makes performing a joy. I couldn't be happier to have acquired this instrument!

A.K. Violin

When my violin was stolen, I immediately began searching for a worthy replacement. Over the course of nearly two months, I visited numerous local violin shops and dealers for the perfect fit, and none compared to what I found at K.C. Strings! I needed a violin that had a bold sound in an orchestra setting, and also had a rich sound in a solo setting. I found what I was looking for in my KRUTZ Aria violin, of which I am now a proud owner.

Not enough can be said about the staff at K.C. Strings. It is rare to find such personalized assistance in a shop that carries so many instruments and bows. Their unique staff keeps me coming back time and time again for any service my violin or bow needs.

Thank you K.C. Strings for the beautiful violin. After playing on it for a few months now, I am assured I made the right choice in choosing to buy from you!

A.K. Cello

The cello anton made for me is great. Symphony players I interact with say it is one of the best in the symphony when used there. It has depth of tonal color better than any I have played. I sold my 1844 Charles Gaillard...I never played it! The staff was always friendly and Anton is great about adjusting it...he wants it perfect for me.

A.K. Violin

The thing that I love the most about the shop is that every single one of their instruments has an individual character to it. Sometimes several violins (when they are of the same series) may look very similar to each other, but when you play them you realize that each one was hand crafted and a lot of care went into making them.

My violin had a very distinctive sound that I just loved immediately. I tried a lot of violins at the shop, but I would always come back to the one I ended up buying. What I'm trying to say is that the fact that they have such a great variety is a good thing because individual musicians have individual needs that a generic, mass produced instrument may not be capable of fulfilling.

The people who work at K.C. Strings are really nice and they are always willing to work with you. They are all about getting their instruments in Musicians'hands, so they are very understanding and cooperative.

Manuel Tabora. I've been playing violin for 6 years now. I am currently a violin performance student at Washburn University, taking lessons from Dr. Larisa Elisha. I also serve as concertmaster for the Washburn Symphony and String orchestras.
