Quality string instruments

Where we started

Founded in 2009 by bassist Charles Winters, our shop specializes in the sale, restoration, instruction, and rental of upright basses, cellos, violas, and violins. Our client list ranges from great orchestral musicians to local public and private schools, individual students to world-renowned music performers and arts centers. We serve professionals, students, and amateurs, and pride ourselves on the care and attention we give each player and their instrument.
Instrument craftsmanship


Our focus is on maximizing the sound potential of the instrument through quality instrument setup for ideal learning playability, educating all levels of players in the south Florida community (and beyond) and providing each individual musician with instrument maintenance and supply items.

What we offer

Besides providing a full range of luthier services, Miami String also sells antique and modern instruments, rents professional quality instruments, and maintains a full stock of bass, cello, viola, violin, and general music accessories. We also carry specialty products from many of our partners.

Teaching the next generation

Our values and purpose

We believe in symphony design with the student in mind. High-quality, correct and easy instrument set-up is at the core of our company’s values. We want to be sure to provide a new or continuing musician with the best instrument and tools in order to be successful in their learning and in their future.
