About Benning Violins

Benning Violins - formerly known as Studio City Music - is a Los Angeles-area mainstay violin shop offering an extensive catalog of fine violins, violas, cellos and bows for sale crafted by old and modern masters.

We are a family-owned and operated store since 1953 and have a long tradition of expert service and meeting the needs of musicians, from the beginner to the professional.

We perform restorations and repairs on fine instruments and bows. We offer expert appraisals of instruments as well as consignment sales.

For three generations, the Benning family name has been synonymous with the making of fine, master-crafted violins, violas and cellos. Instruments crafted by Eric Benning are owned and played by a number of premier players, concert performers and recording artists.

Since the launch of our web site, we have grown into an International enterprise, shipping fine instruments and bows, accessories, as well as lesser-cost student outfits set up in our workshop, all over the world.

The Evah Pirazzi Gold strings have a core made from a modern synthetic multifilament fiber.

They provide a brilliant, gold tone full-bodied and a big sound from the very bottom to the top of the register. With a wide range of sound colors, the great dynamic range allows skilled players to explore confidently both the finest nuances of quiet passages and create powerful sonorities when playing close to the finger-board or using a strong bow arm. Instant response throughout allows for a complete dynamic range, very short break in time, and that of a shorter response than Evah Pirazzi and Obligato. It has an excellent tuning stability absolutely insensitive to variations in temperature and humidity.
