Who We Are

Manchester Music Violin Shop has been open since 2007 and is owned by Andrey Lobko.  Andrey is a master luthier who studied with John Reed and Lisbeth Nelson Butler, formerly the president of the Violin Society of America.

Together, we offer over 50 years of experience playing, repairing, and restoring violins to our customers!

Why We Do It

Manchester music violin shop is a locally owned and operated violin shop that strives to support and enrich the music community of St. Louis.

We regularly donate instruments to local school programs, we work with parent-teacher associations to raise funds for music programs, and our team members visit local schools to provide hands-on demonstrations to the students in support of the Boy Scouts of America.

What Our St. Louis Community Says

“We recently rented a ‘cello for our son, who is 10 and learning to play. The rate was very fair and we were happy with the level of service. They have us as customers for life, and our sincerest thanks and appreciation!! What a wonderful store we have here in west St. Louis county!! HIGHLY recommended!!”

“I was so pleased with Andre’s work on my 1904 violin.  As a teacher and performer it’s always nerve-wrecking to drop off your instrument, but she came back to me in beautiful condition.  I needed a bridge replacement and sound post adjustment and I’m thrilled with the new balance.  Even my orchestra stand partner noticed a difference in my tone through a loud rehearsal!  Have no fears, your instrument is in good hands here.”

“A wonderful locally owned and operated store. I give the HIGHEST recommendation to Manchester music, For all you stringed instrument needs this is the place, reasonably priced QUALITY instruments. It is a small mom and pop shop with an old world charm and man do they know their stuff!”
