About Us & Viola Strings

Viola-Strings, is owned and operated by the String Emporium. S.E. has been in business for over 22 years. We pride our selves on our professionalism and offering the best products at the best prices. While we are known for our upright basses we are similarly able to offer great deals on our viola strings. At the String Emporium, we also have great deals on viola cases. Because of the overwhelming demand for our viola strings, and to keep it simple for the buyer, we have dedicated this site to viola strings, cases and rosin.

About the owner. Besides owning and operating the String Emporium (and Viola-Strings.com), I currently serve as Assistant Principal Double bass with the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra.

I have been in this position for the past 29 years and before coming to Phoenix, I was also Principal double bass with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra for 4 years. In addition to my orchestral experience, I have free-lanced as a Jazz musician for the past 30 years! Here, I am pictured with my beloved Vincenzo Corain bass which was made in Trieste, Italy, 1848.

At the String Emporium...

  • We offer the utmost in professionalism, quality of service and dedication.
  • We pride ourselves by treating each and every customer with the utmost respect and sincerest commitment.
  • All of our instruments are at the highest quality, while our central theme still, is keeping the prices the most affordable and the most competitive
  • When comparing ‘apples to apples’ no one beats our service or prices!
  • Our upright bass and cello strings, are the cheapest in the world!
Please feel free to call or email us at anytime. We are eager to find the right instrument or accessory you need.
