Global Sound – Los Angeles, CA. (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Benning Violins, the distinguished Los Angeles violin shop that has become a mainstay institution providing sales and service to the classical music scene of Southern California, has announced the release of the largest online catalog of fine string instruments and bows on the West Coast. The collection includes more than 50 master-crafted violins alone.
According to Eric Benning, resident master violinmaker and luthier, the release of the catalog was timed to coincide with the recent release of their new state-of-the-art web site. Weve had this large stash of antique and contemporary instruments waiting to be fine tuned and photographed, said Benning. It isnt so much that we were holding the cards close to our vests; we wanted to present these instruments for sale to the public in such a way that does justice to them.
The collection includes violins crafted by Italian masters like Carlo Testore, Nicola Gagliano, Carlo Tononi, Petrus Gaggini, Thomaso Balestrieri and Guiseppe and Stefano Scarampella. Well over 100 violin, viola and cello bows by French masters Eug
