The firm of Ira B. Kraemer & Co., Fine Violins was established in 1967 in East Orange, New Jersey and now celebrates 40 years of service to the string community. In 1972 the firm moved to Westfield, New Jersey and in 1974 acquired the land and site it now occupies in Scotch Plains, New Jersey. Our shop is convenient to Route 22, Route 78, Route 287, The Garden State Parkway.
Our firm has always been known to supply fine violins, violas , cellos and bows at below current market values. Our extensive collection which is one of the largest on the east coast has been acquiring instruments for about 40 years through estate acquisitions, violin shop buyouts and the direct importation of new instruments. We deal directly with the consumer and don’t sell instruments through third parties which are conditional to commissions. We offer a 100% trade in policy for instruments purchased from us, provided that the instrument has not sustained any major damage and there are no made up charges for wear and tear(worn strings, worn bow hair, warped bridges, etc). We have serviced customers from coast to coast in the U.S. and have sold instruments to customers in Dubai, Australia, Japan, Lithuania, Singapore, France and Israel.
