Zachary Moen's violinmaking studio is located in the historic John and Emily Bonnin house, just blocks from downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan and the University of Michigan campus.  Visits to the studio are strictly by appointment only.  The studio only sells and services instruments by Zachary Moen and does not offer repair, restoration, or appraisals for other instruments.


Giving back to the music community is a core value of Zachary Moen Violins.  For every instrument purchased from us, we donate a portion of the profits to StringBridge, a non-profit organization co-founded by Zachary Moen that is on a mission to transform 1,000,000 lives through music.
