Peter Zaret playing violin

Dr. Peter Zaret, received a bachelor's degree from Juilliard 1963 and a masters degree from Juilliard in 1964 in violin performance. He was a student of Joseph Fuchs during this time. In 1983 he started the business now called Peter Zaret and Sons Violins. This business relocated from Norfolk, Virginia to Cleveland, Ohio in June of 1998.

As a company with over 30 years of experience serving the musical community and in particular the string instrument community, we offer many different kinds of services to string instrumentalists from the renting of instruments, to sales and most any type of repair.

Beyond the traditional services that a violin shop can offer, we market many innovations. Take a look at our Zarelon carbon fiber bows with Zarelon unbreakable bow hair. Check out the Zaret Tonal System which greatly enhances the power and richness of bowed string instruments as well as guitars.
