Like a time machine,
Presenting us sounds of more than two hundred years ago,
Dressed in a story that is more dramatic than a novel.
While being artwork like sculpture,
They are supreme handicrafts any high-technology of today cannot reach.
We think old string instruments are cultural heritage
That humankind should hand over to next generation.
They are not just instruments.
That made us reach a concept that we should and would like to
Buy and sell genuinely valuable instruments alone
And to strive for scrupulous repair and maintenance with deep-rooted knowledge and mature skills,
And have been doing so since our foundation in 1980.
We are very grateful that we have gained sympathy from many people for our concept,
And have served many celebrated musicians and music foundations.
Great treasures are instruments, made as long as one hundred years ago.
Could you please have a hand to help them be handed over to next generation?
We are always ready to present you any support.
Hand over genuineness to next generation
