Vision Statement:

Through Passion, Quality, Value, Integrity, Community, Luther Strings will become the nation's leader in string sales, restorations, and education through online resources and the Denver shop location.  We strive to be the nation’s definitive sounding board and resource for all things related to strings!





Unfortunately, there are more unscrupulous characters in this business than you would believe.  Even at the local level. We will never switch labels within instruments or cut corners for a quick payoff.  We want you to be satisfied with your experience over your entire life as a musician, teacher, and artist; and to visit us again, and again.  We want to be successful gradually, and over the long-term, not the short-term.


More than just a string shop with amazing instruments, repairs, and restorations.  we want to be a resource and a hub and cornerstone for the string community in Denver, and Colorado.

We provide discounts schools, music programs, El Sistema programs, and bulk purchases.  

At every price, our instruments are hand-picked by professional teachers and performers for their full, even, and beautiful of sound, along with their ease of playing, and then put through our rigorous 10-point inspection before they are available to the public.  Whether you’re looking for a $100 instrument, or a million-dollar instrument, we got you covered!

There are hundreds of options for instruments under $3,000.  Some sound and play below their value, and just a few lines of instruments play greatly above their value, sounding as good as instruments many times more expensive.  We carry the most exclusive and exemplary lines that will outperform other instruments at that price range.

Unique to a string shop, Luther Strings consists of passionate performers and teachers, that are wizards of all things relating to string instruments and accessories.  They are here to provide you with the best experience possible.

Luther Strings consists of expert performers, teachers, professors, and luthiers who are deeply passionate about the power of music.  This defines every interaction, product, and service we offer. We proudly serve the absolute beginner to the professional artist. We are here to be a cornerstone for the music community!

instruments sales

We sell: violins, violas, cellos, basses, bows, fractional instruments, 5-string violins/violas, guitars, mandolins, ukuleles, baroque instruments and electric instruments.  


Quality meets value.  Finding the right instrument can be a daunting task!  At Luther Strings you can relax; our instruments are hand-picked by string professors, teachers and performers for their sound, playability, and value!  While this just makes plain sense, it is not the case for most shops across the nation. We travel the world to find the best instruments and create relationships with the world’s leading instrument makers.  On top of that, our instruments are set-up, tested, and adjusted in the Luther Strings Sound Lab for further development of sound and playability.  This truly makes our instrument selection unique. We are proud to offer industry-leading services:   

  • Any instrument purchased from Luther strings can be returned for 100% of it’s value towards a nicer instrument.

  • We take commissions.

  • We take trade-ins.

  • Honest comparison: Don’t buy a string instrument without visiting or calling us first!  If you bring an instrument to us, we’ll gladly give you our best comparison.  We’re happy to play both instruments for you, and give our honest opinion. If by some miracle, you find a better instrument than ours, we’ll absolutely tell you!  We want you to have the best product for your money, as you deserve nothing less.
