Bluett Bros. Violins

122 Hill St, York, PA 17403



Since 1984, world-class Master Luthier Mark Bluett has been making all kinds of stringed instruments, from familiar violins and guitars to less well known instruments like mandocellos and bouzoukis. He also specializes in instrument repair, working with players from orchestras and symphonies around the world to bring their prized possessions back to life. Bluett Bros. Violins also offers apprenticeships for those who want to learn how to make their own instruments! Stop in to view his beautiful creations or tour the workshop (when available) and learn all about the history and creation process of stringed instruments across cultures and genres. If you're lucky, you'll get to hear him play a song or two himself!
