About Nikolai Tambovsky
Nikolai Tambovsky’s instrument store is a family owned business. Nikolai has operated the store for more than 30 years making and selling violins, violas, cellos, and basses providing string instrument players with everything needed for their musical endeavors.
Like many, Nikolai Tambovsky was introduced to the magical world of music at the tender age of four, when the sound of the violin enraptured him with its graceful form and enchanting melodies. As a result of being thus enamored, he decided to study professionally, mastering such works as the Tchaikovsky and Sibelius violin concertos, continuing to discover the secrets of the sound of the Violin.
Shortly thereafter he was plunged into the mysterious world of maple and spruce woods, creating violins from their raw form. The creation of the violin became a labor of love, enabling him to produce the sound he had been seeking. The sounds of Nikolai Tambovsky’s violins carried the richness and nuance of the human voice as well as its depth of emotion, enjoyed by so many string instrument players today. This has made him one of the best known contemporary violin makers today.
