2009 String Instruments Fair in Tokyo

| No Comments

Japan String Instrument Makers Association organized 52nd String Instruments Fair from Oct. 30 through Nov. 1 at Tokyo Science Museum. Originated as an exclusive stringed instruments exhibition for luthiers and archetiers, amateur and professional players, and general music enthusiasts, the 2009 fair drew 59 independent makers and manufacturers from Japan and 19 makers, companies and associations from 6 countries including Italy, France and Germany. The economic slump caused about 10% decline of the exhibitors compared with the last year. The number of visitors were 3,500, 500 less from the 2008 Fair. 

Nobuhiro Sonoda, president of the association, expects that the fair provides Japanese players an opportunity to experience a broad selection of instruments of various makes and origins and find ones matched to individual taste.
