KRUTZ Series instruments raise the bar for student level instruments. They are carefully constructed to our specifications in our affiliated shop in Beijing and all set-up in our Kansas City workshop. KRUTZ craftsmen travel there regularly to control quality. This ensures a fine appearance, warm sound and easy playability, even in fractional sizes. Upon arrival at our Kansas City workshop, they are given a professional set-up by our craftsmen. KRUTZ Series instruments produce a higher tonal quality at a more competitive price.
