Welcome to Keller Strings – May 13, 2020 UPDATE

We trust that music is filling your home with beautiful sounds and getting you through this period of isolation.  Keller Strings extends our sincere hope that this message finds you and your loved ones in good health during these challenging times.


After being closed for two months during this Pandemic, we are re-opening our instrument showroom with shortened hours. These hours are subject to change, so check our posted hours before planning your visit. We are happy to schedule appointments outside of our posted “OPEN” hours. If you would like an appointment, please call or email us to schedule instrument or bow purchases/trial, or new rentals. If you are picking up or dropping off repair, purchasing accessories, dropping off or exchanging rental instruments, please visit us during posted business hours.


When you visit our shop, remember to wear a mask. This is a requirement by the City of New Orleans, and we require ALL customers who enter our shop to wear a mask. Due to the nature of our business, we also require and provide hand sanitizer upon entering the shop. This process will assist us in providing the safest environment for you.


As a continued precaution, every instrument and bow is carefully cleaned and prepared before it leaves Keller Strings. All instrument touch surfaces – fingerboards, necks, strings, pegs, chinrests, tailpeices, and frogs – are cleaned before handling or shipping. Incoming instruments to Keller Strings will also be subjected to the same precautionary measures.


During the Stay-At-Home order, we have been assisting customers “curbside” from our back door. Many of you have called or emailed for supplies, instruments, or repairs. To all of you – THANK YOU for your support! You have been a very bright spot in what could have been some very quiet days. We have also kept busy re-arranging our retail spaces that will assist us in helping you in an efficient and timely manner. We have missed you, and look forward to serving you again!

Premium Selection of Violins, Violas, Cellos, Upright Basses, & Accessories

In addition to sales, repair & restoration services, Keller Strings offers rental of fractional and full-sized instruments, instruction, and appraisal. Our customer service extends to an online mission to bring the experience of the New Orleans’s Boutique Violin Shop by providing competitively priced e-Commerce as part of our web site. With an understanding of how social media involves our clients, an active Facebook page completes this growing niche business. Keller Strings knows that instruments are nothing without the people behind them. If there are two things we love most, it’s live music and being a part of the community that makes it happen. Because of its rich music history, deep culture, and passionate artistry, New Orleans provides us with the perfect backdrop for our beautiful, artisanal string instruments. Keller Strings has been nominated by the Louisiana Small Business Development Center for the 2014 SBA awards; Entrepreneurial Success Award and the Family Owned Business Award.
