About the owner. Besides owing and operating the String Emporium, I currently serve as Assistant Principal Double bass with the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra.

I have been in this position for the past 18 years and before coming to Phoenix, I was also Principal double bass with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra for 4 years. In addition to my orchestral experience, I have free-lanced as a Jazz musician for the past 30 years!  Here, I am pictured with my beloved Vincenzo Corain bass which was made in Trieste, Italy, 1848.
