Bringe Music was founded in 1956 by original owner, German violin maker Walter Bringe, who moved to St. Petersburg from Rochester, NY. In the early days the store focused primarily on selling and repairing orchestral strings and Bringe did some business with schools, mostly selling strings and equipment to the orchestra programs. He also offered some private lessons and eventually expanded his business to include band instruments and accessories.
Most of the instruments sold by Bringe were actually products manufactured in Germany or Czechoslovakia which he placed his name in as a retailer. It is important to ascertain whether or not your piece is one actually made by Bringe or just sold by him, as there is a difference in values. It really needs to be inspected in person to ascertain that...
At present, typical German made Bringe branded violins retail from $300 to $500 and those actually made by the luthier from $1,200 to $2,300. Many of this pieces sold in the 1960s were actually made by his partner, Wallace Wilsey, also a very qualified luthier. The business still exists today but Bringe left the trade in 1978 and sold the brand to Bill Findeison. Hope this helps! Best, Will
