Violin Rental - Rating 5 out of 5!

We've had a great experience with KC Strings. We had one issue where a part was broken (by another student in class) and when I brought it in it was replaced quickly and without question. Great Customer Service for our only incident and the violin works great!

Lessons - Rating 5 out of 5!

My son has been going to the Olathe location now for a year and a half. He feels like he has learned a lot and increased in playing ability of the violin. I appreciate the feedback from the instructor regarding his progress. Scheduling for missed lessons due to school events has never been an issue.

Private lessons and the shop itself - Rating: 5 out of 5!

I am an adult beginner and have been taking private lessons from Pat Ireland since day one. I enjoy the convenience of location, the beauty of the shop itself, and really love my lessons. I have rented a violin from your shop, and purchased books, shoulder rests, and strings. The people who have helped me have gone out of their way to be courteous and informative.

Violin private lessons and rental - Rating: 5 out of 5!

KC Strings has been a great place for us. It's close to our house, we rent our son's violin there with no worries and he has benefited from private lessons. Everyone we have had contact with has been courteous and helpful.

Experience - Rating: 5 out of 5!

I have been using KC Strings for at least 3 years, I rent my daughters Cello, Sons Bass and now my youngest got his Viola there. Everyone is always so very nice and helpful. It is a nice warm and an inviting environment. It is organized and classical and the nice young man and lady have the same culture as the environment which just make it a pleasant place to return to. I did initially rent my daughters Cello at another music store when she first began strings and switched to KC strings after having trouble with low quality instruments and I am so glad I did, much better quality and service!

Visiting your shop and short term rental - Rating: 5 out of 5!

About two years ago we rented a violin for our granddaughter's use while the family was home in the U.S. it was a completely satisfactory and satisfying experience. Your staff were helpful and accommodating, the fee was reasonable and the instrument was good. It is delightful to see all your beautiful instruments!

Rental/Shop - Rating: 5 out of 5!

I came to Kansas City in late August to vacation for a week and needed to rent a bass to practice on. Stopped into KC Strings and was knocked out by shop. The staff, the store and the quality of instruments there are top notch. Anton, the owner, gave my wife and I the grand tour of the workshops, varnish and wood storage rooms. An incredible operation. We also got to speak at length about his instrument making philosophy and play a bunch of his high end basses. As a big bass nerd, this was a thrill. Thanks to everyone at KC Strings. This shop is the real deal.

We have had to go there a few times for my son, who is a violinist, and they are always very helpful.


Violin, Viola, Cello - Rating: 5 out of 5!

KC Strings is AWESOME! I love their store. They are so helpful and convenient. But more importantly, they rent and sell quality instruments! We have rented, and then eventually purchased, 5 different instruments from them. We love KC Strings! We have worked with 2 other instrument rental places, and KC Strings is by far the best!


Great service and instruments - Rating: 5 out of 5!

We bought my oldest daughter's cello and my youngest daughter's violin here. Both times we were treated very well by very knowledgeable people. They were very generous with their time and gave good advice. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the shop and both daughters ended up with very good instruments for the amount we were able to spend. I would always recommend a visit to KC Strings for anyone in search of an instrument.


Appreciating her daughter's violin...

Dear Ben,

Thank you for carefully choosing a nice violin for our daughter. Her teacher, Dr. Mia Wu, could not stop smiling at the craftsmanship of the miniature 1/16 version. She said she often sees fractionals that are usually toy like. The teacher commented that the careful packing and shipping of the violin was well done. Most importantly is that the violin arrived in fine playable condition and sounds very nice. Practice is a JOY!

Thank you again for the time that you spent to find the correct violin and accessories. I like that KC Strings is solely a string shop and that a luthier examined the violin before shipment. It is refreshing to find knowledgeable staff and quality instruments under one roof. I look forward to working with you as our children grow in ability and as they need larger instruments.

As for now, our daughter loves her little Krutz violin.

Best regards,
Sheri Saltarelli



Dear Mr. Cooper,

Subject: Picking out a Bass.

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to K.C. Strings. The experience Julia had of picking out her bass was a wonderful experience. We LOVED the tour of the workshop and have already shared it with our neighbor who played the cello in high school. The website doesn't do your workshop justice. It is very impressive! Perhaps one day Julia will own an Anton Krutz bass!!

Please let Brian know that Oklahoma Joe's was everything he promised and more!! The portions were gigantic. He didn't prepare us for that and we are eating the left overs for dinner tonight!! Give him our thanks for all his help with Julia and looking at the basses.

Sincerely,

Subject: Using K.C. Strings Bass.

I was at KMEA on February the 27th this year to play with an intercollegiate band. I stopped to look at the K.C. Strings booth and was looking at the instruments they brought with them. While I was talking with Mac and Dustin who were running the booth we started talking about the bass I was borrowing to play the concert with and I lamented about its poor quality. I motioned over to one of the basses they had on display and said how my bass was almost identical to that particular one.

Mac then asked me when my concert was and when I told him he said that I could borrow the K.C. Strings bass to play the concert. I left the booth with a bass, case and bass buggy (Which is one of the best inventions for the bass) and played my concert. The bass sounded fabulous and I couldn't have been happier. I have always been impressed with K.C. Strings and the people who work there, but this weekend I was blown over by the customer service the store offers.

Both Mac and Dustin recognized me from when I have brought my bass into the shop to be looked at. Thank You K.C. Strings for making such fine instruments and having such a knowledgeable and helpful staff.

Hello! My sister and I were in your K.C. Strings shop last Saturday afternoon to drop off a violin bow for restoration. I was just writing to check on the progress of the restoration process. I am so much looking forward to the day the violin and bows arrive, and I can begin my musical endeavors once again. Better late, than never!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks again for your outstanding service and expertise that has exceeding all our expectations.

I am still surfing the web site, and look forward to doing business with your fine establishment in the near future.

Subject: The Shop!

With no previous school background a very limited lesson experience from another store with an inferior instrument, I meekly walked into heaven. I was greeted as if I was someone of substance and asked if I would like to try a few instruments out. I wasn't even knowledgeable to do that. So they played a few I picked out because they were pretty. Again, the professionalism they demonstrated to me was amazing. They even let me take the instrument home to see how it would sound in my modest home. Wow. It sounded better there. I immediately took my simple little old violin I had been scratching out tunes on and they were generous to me again. I made my payments in cash which was the first time I startle them. The teacher was kind and advanced me quickly to her little orchestra group. While, due to personal problems, I am not playing, I have my little violin and it comforts me when I play for my church or my family.

Thank you, Anton, and the rest of the amazing family at K.C. Strings. I will not be anybody at the great musical events. But I am a somebody at your store and you remember my name. Thank you for being such a quality store to all people and bringing music to all of us. May God richly bless all of you and your staff. Amen.

Anton Krutz Violin

I have been playing the AK violin for almost 2 years now. From the moment I picked it up in the shop, I was in love. It is the most powerful and dynamic instrument I have ever played- regardless of what style of music, it sings or saws beautifully. Besides the confidence I feel at performances with the instrument, almost more compelling is the joy I feel when practicing in a quiet house. It truly takes me to a different place every time I begin a song...

Thank you!

KRUTZ Aria Violin

By the way, the Williams/Krutz violin I bought last year from you is GREAT! After four years of searching for one, it was such a relief to find one that brought back the joy of playing; the sound is so full and dependable, it's given me confidence in working on new techniques, and I've been asked to join a chamber orchestra.

A.K. Viola

Emma bought one of your personally made violas and has been playing it hard the last few months. Tonight, she performed a Bach Prelude for an Honors Recital. The viola had wonderful tone and filled the 1000 seat auditorium beautifully. It was powerful and had the bella canto voice singing at the top of its lungs. She also made assistant principal chair for the Omaha Area Youth Orchestra Symphony as a sophomore. She is in love with your instrument and I want to thank you.

By the way, how is the archtop guitar going?

2007 Anton Krutz Violin

This is easily the best modern violin I have ever had the pleasure of playing. The depth of sonority, sweet tone and wide palate of colors inherent to the instrument make it very versatile, suitable for both solo and ensemble performance. It is both powerful and sensitive, and responds equally well to the grittier modern repertoire and the more tranquil and elegant classical pieces. The ease of playing the violin brings out the best in my playing, and makes performing a joy. I couldn't be happier to have acquired this instrument!

A.K. Violin

When my violin was stolen, I immediately began searching for a worthy replacement. Over the course of nearly two months, I visited numerous local violin shops and dealers for the perfect fit, and none compared to what I found at K.C. Strings! I needed a violin that had a bold sound in an orchestra setting, and also had a rich sound in a solo setting. I found what I was looking for in my KRUTZ Aria violin, of which I am now a proud owner.

Not enough can be said about the staff at K.C. Strings. It is rare to find such personalized assistance in a shop that carries so many instruments and bows. Their unique staff keeps me coming back time and time again for any service my violin or bow needs.

Thank you K.C. Strings for the beautiful violin. After playing on it for a few months now, I am assured I made the right choice in choosing to buy from you!

A.K. Cello

The cello anton made for me is great. Symphony players I interact with say it is one of the best in the symphony when used there. It has depth of tonal color better than any I have played. I sold my 1844 Charles Gaillard...I never played it! The staff was always friendly and Anton is great about adjusting it...he wants it perfect for me.

A.K. Violin

The thing that I love the most about the shop is that every single one of their instruments has an individual character to it. Sometimes several violins (when they are of the same series) may look very similar to each other, but when you play them you realize that each one was hand crafted and a lot of care went into making them.

My violin had a very distinctive sound that I just loved immediately. I tried a lot of violins at the shop, but I would always come back to the one I ended up buying. What I'm trying to say is that the fact that they have such a great variety is a good thing because individual musicians have individual needs that a generic, mass produced instrument may not be capable of fulfilling.

The people who work at K.C. Strings are really nice and they are always willing to work with you. They are all about getting their instruments in Musicians'hands, so they are very understanding and cooperative.

Sobol Bow Reviews

Dear Anton:

I am sooooo madly in love with my Sobol cello bow. I have had it for two years now, and I am just amazed at the results--EFFORTLESS PLAYING. I love the articulation (with all the fast stuff that I'm required to play for my upcoming YouTube audition), resonance (especially on the lower strings), dynamic range (even when it's piano, plays piano--forte--power to it).

I'm also amazed at how lightweight it feels. It doesn't tire my arm or give me shoulder pain/fatigue. What I also like is the lifetime warranty. If something ever happens to the bow, you can get a comparable or replacement free of charge. This is my cello's magic wand! The power is all in the Sobol bow.

Please put this testimonial on your website.

Bass Endpin

I'm quite pleased with the wooden endpin with the carbon fibre rod. It has eliminated a noticeable bit of weight, which is important if you're a subway traveler like me. I'm also pretty sure the bass is more resonant than when it was spiked into the floor. This is an excellent product.

Peg Leg Bass Endpins

Hi! I am the ask a Pro for classical double bass on TalkBass.com, where you advertise, and I am very impressed with the peg-leg design for using a straight pin in either the straight or angled (Laborie style) direction. I helped develop the Laborie pin with Christian and Francois and I do believe you have hit on the perfect answer. I would LOVE to check one of these out sometime.

I hope you will visit our site: www.arizonabassplayers.org. We are newly form non-profit, in cooperation with the three major state university schools of music in the state (and their bass teachers) to promote the education and performance of bassists of all natures. Perhaps you would be interested in advertising on our site our in the Festival program, etc.

Hope to hear from you.. and again, bravo!!!

Bass stroller - Rating: 5 out of 5!

My 10 year old nephew plays the bass at school in London, where parking is nearly impossible. It was so hard to get the bass around there with a car that he could rarely practice at home. I sent him a bass stroller and now he wheels the 1/4 bass to and from school like a pro!

I have to tell you how much I love my new bass buggie. I have played bass seriously since 1993 and have tried handtrucks, bass wheels, shoulder straps and homemade dollies. This product is by far the best I have used. Lightweight, small and easy to pack, goes on the bass with the case or without. I will recommed it to my students. Thank you again.

What: bass buggie

I love my bass buggy! I have a small bass but I am a short lady, I needed some wheels in a bad way! Some friends got together and bought me a bass buggy for a present, it is awesome! I"m strutting around as if I had been given a new vehicle! It saves my back so much that it is not an issue anymore to get it in and out of the house and loaded. It"s great that it stands while I open doors, etc. Walking up a hill is so much easier with the bass in my hand instead of trying to carry it and walk. a very well thought out invention!

Subject: bass buggie

I had to send a note after receiving my new wheels from you. I think it has given me ten more years to play the bass. I am delighted with the buggie as I thought I might have to give up playing because it was getting difficult to carry the bass around. I tried the single wheel that attached to the endpin years ago and it was useless and awkward to use. Yours is great, lightweight and practical. Thank you for a super invention.

This is just a belated thank you for your help in getting the bass buggie. I have been happily using it with my Violone and I LOVE it!! Quick to put on and take off, wheels that work wonderfully, instrument feels very protected and so does my back. Everyone who sees it thinks it's a really cool thing too. So maybe you will be getting more orders from the early music community around Boston.

The product is the best thing for moving a bass around. I am so glad to have found your web site and the product. It certainly made life easier for me as I had to haul my bass from the van to the stage which was across a football field. Not being a spring chicken anymore, I was very pleased to be able to have the bass buggy. Thanks for a wonderful invention.

This double bass buggie is fantastic! You've saved my spine, not to mention my sanity. It's easy to put on, and easy to trundle the bass around. Makes moving a bass as easy as walking around.

Just a quick note to say how delighted I am with the Bass Buggie now that I have had a chance to use it, So easy to strap on and take off in seconds - a real boon when transporting through long Hotel corridors etc. It is absolutely brilliant. I will certainly recommend it to my fellow bass players at every opportunity.

Where were you guys 50 years ago? I can?t believe how beautiful this buggie works. The first time I used it was at Hotel Hershey in Hershey, PA. Naturally, musicians are second rate citizens so we enter thru the rear & thru the kitchen. I go down a service ramp, thru 3 big rubber doors, down a hallway, up an elevator, & across the hall into the ballroom. For a 72 year old bugger, this was a cakewalk. Thanks again.

Subject: Bass Buggie

We (from England) bought the Bass Buggie a few months ago but this is the first time we have really used it properly. I am 10 and we had to park in a car park to get to my Bass lesson. My teacher thought it was really good for wheeling longer distances. It is really smooth and the video on the website is quite good for showing you how to fix it on. The steering is quite hard at first but I guess we're all learner drivers when it comes to Bass Buggies! However, I think you could make a couple of improvements to your website:

1. Put captions in or underneath the video, stating how to fix the buggie on.

2. Put some close-up shots of how to fix the bungie round the neck, since the video doesn't really show you.

But the actual product is great, and I would give it 9/10

Subject: Restoration.

I brought in a violin that I inherited from my grandmother that was in poor shape but a great instrument none the less; K.C. Strings was able to do all the necessary restorations to turn it into a exquisite instrument. My experience with the people and the quality of the work was just awesome to say the least, they were friendly, kept me updated about the repairs on my violin, and even rented me an instrument to play while mine was being restored. Because of K.C. Strings an instrument that brought enjoyment to my family for over a century will be able to continue do so, hopefully for another century.

Joseph Swensen - Touring Soloist

The violin is truly beautiful. I hope to take it with me on many tours this year. The presenter of the concert in Bamberg,(Germany) actually was convinced it was a great Stradavari...


Leila Josefowicz - Touring Soloist

...I have found it sounds wonderful. It is amazingly responsive and resonant; the lower strings are very rich, and it produces a lot of volume throughout all ranges.


Micheal Karlson - Concertmaster, Gothenburg Symphony , Gothenberg, Sweden

The violin's ...Beautifully rich sound was coupled with an extraordinarily powerful tone that carried out in the concert hall. I am more than happy to play exclusively on Krutz violins.


Wendy Putnam - Violinist and Soloist, Boston Symphony
Former Concertmaster, Louisiana Philharmonic.

The opportunity to buy well made instruments with an extraordinarily good sound at an affordable price is extremely unusual and important to me. These violins are of the highest quality and are comparable to Italian instruments.

This violin is excellent


John Hartford - Nashville folk musician

Thank you for the wonderful violin you made. I've used it on every show I've played since I've got it
