Street Musician is now proud to be able to present to you a small collection of beautifully hand made professional instruments, made by master luthiers from across the world in Bolivia, South America.
It is important to appreciate the difference between the superior quality professional instruments you see here for sale, and the many cheap tourist grade instruments you find for sale in Peruvian market places and on internet sites at much lower prices.
These instruments are not created for the tourist market or intended to be mounted as wall displays or talking pieces, they are made by professional artisan musicians and luthiers and are concert standard instruments that function at a professional level.
If I were to sell the sort of instruments found in a typical tourist market in South America, you would generally pay over the top prices for roughly made substandard pieces unworthy of anything but display. These are the real deal, and I do my best to provide them to you at good prices.
All these instruments come with my Street Musician Satisfaction Guarantee. If you have any queries regarding anything you see on this site, feel free to contact me using my contact page or the comment form below.
