SERVING BRYAN, COLLEGE STATION, THE GREATER BRAZOS VALLEY & BEYOND, AUSTIN AND HOUSTON!
The String & Horn Shop, Inc., Est.1979
Originally opened as Bowman’s String & Horn Shop on Haswell Street by luthier Bradley Bowman in 1979, the store became The String & Horn Shop, Inc. when Paul and Susan Rieger purchased the business in 1994 and relocated the storefront to the former Duke & Ayers (circa 1876) building in Historic Downtown Bryan. The String & Horn Shop has remained in this building ever since, being one of the cornerstone businesses that helped revitalize the now-thriving small business district of the Downtown Bryan area.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to play music and for that reason we cater to the beginning music student–but we also strive to serve every musician that comes through our doors! We carry (and are official dealers for) a large variety of intermediate and professional band and string instruments, as well as carry a good selection of guitars, percussion, world and folk instruments, and fun items. So whether you play in school, play in a quartet, or play in your garage, we just might have what you need!
We also pride ourselves on being one of a handful of stores in Texas that has professional, qualified full repair service for both band and orchestra instruments. Our highly capable staff is made up of some of the most notable names in the industry. Be sure to check out their pages right here on our website!
