When you buy a KRUTZ instrument, you can rest assured knowing that you will be getting a quality instrument that is professionally set up in our famous Kansas City workshop with over 3 decades of experience.

KRUTZ is the only instrument maker that offers a range of beginner student violins all the way up to professional instruments. Our professional instruments are made from a block of wood and meticulously crafted. Other shops only carry the student level instruments and do not know the quality of the craftsmanship needed on the high level instruments and therefore do not have the transferable expertise on their student level instruments. Because we make high level violins, we are also able to offer quality student level instruments that we stand by.

In addition to having a range of instruments at every skill level, from student to professional, we offer a variety of different instruments. Many shops do not offer double-basses or unique instruments like the 5 string Viola or the 5-string Bass. We proudly offer violins, violas, cellos, basses, 5-string violin, 5-string bass, mandolins, and guitars.

Our expertise ensures that our instruments both sound and look great. As luthiers and makers, we ensure the violin is optimized for playability and tone. When you buy from us, you will have the confidence that our instruments are professionally set up to give you the best playing experience and tone.


We’ve been around since 1992 and have a reputation for our quality and range of instruments. In addition to being in business for over 3 decades, we give you a money back guarantee, so when you make your purchase, it will be worry free.
