We work in close collaboration with the world-renowned master craftsman John K. Becker, the foremost restorer and adjuster of the finest rare, antique instruments. The firm also frequently collaborates with the eminent cello restoration expert Russell Wagner of Chicago Celloworks.

Bein & Fushi fosters new instrument making and is closely affiliated with several modern masters: John Norwood Lee, maker and restorer of fine bows; violin makers Tetsuo Matsuda and Michael Darnton; and cello maker William Whedbee.

The company's elegant antique and memorabilia-filled showrooms overlook beautiful Grant Park and Buckingham Fountain and are located on the 10th floor of Chicago's historic Fine Arts Building at 410 South Michigan Avenue. Bein & Fushi also offers a full range of accessories, recordings, and books, which are available at our shop and by mail.
