What size instrument should I get?

The best way to get sized is to consult your instructor. We at New York Quality Strings are also here to help you choose the correct size. If you make an appointment to visit our shop we can size you and provide you an instrument at that time. If you would like to estimate the size you need here is a brief description on how:

Extend the left hand straight out to the side parallel with the floor. Using either a yardstick or tape measure, measure from the base of the neck to the center of the palm.

Use the sizing chart below from the measurements obtained above to determine the instrument size.
