About Benning Violins

Benning Violins - formerly known as Studio City Music - is a Los Angeles-area mainstay violin shop offering an extensive catalog of fine violins, violas, cellos and bows for sale crafted by old and modern masters.

We are a family-owned and operated store since 1953 and have a long tradition of expert service and meeting the needs of musicians, from the beginner to the professional.

We perform restorations and repairs on fine instruments and bows. We offer expert appraisals of instruments as well as consignment sales.

For three generations, the Benning family name has been synonymous with the making of fine, master-crafted violins, violas and cellos. Instruments crafted by Eric Benning are owned and played by a number of premier players, concert performers and recording artists.

Since the launch of our web site, we have grown into an International enterprise, shipping fine instruments and bows, accessories, as well as lesser-cost student outfits set up in our workshop, all over the world.

Medium tension, aluminum wound, ball end. Specifically designed to solve open E-string whistling.

Produces a warm rich tone that blends very well with lower strings. Playing length 328mm and Tension 18.6 lbs. The introductory string in this series eliminates the whistling sometimes heard when the open E string is played while crossing from a lower string. Its unique design comes from intense scientific study, and the result is a string that not only eliminates the whistle, but produces a sweeter sound that better matches the sound quality of lower strings! The Kaplan E string can also be converted to fit loop end if so desired.
