Snow Stringed Instruments is the sole distributor of Xueping Hu's instruments in the United States.
In October 1989, the renowned luthier William Hu( Chinese name Xueping Hu) established the Snow Workshop in Beijing, China with six workers, to produce hand-crafted string instruments. Nine years later, Snow Stringed Instruments, Inc was born in New York. William’s brother, Jack Hu expanded Snow into an international wholesale business specializing in quality violins, violas, cellos, and basses only produced from Snow workshop. Over the past years, Snow has consulted leading luthiers from Italy, France, the UK and the US for specific guidance regarding construction, tone production and varnishing .The company has continued to refine its artistry and follow the latest technologies in crafting exquisite stringed instruments, and steadily produce a new line for each year. Snow proudly carries a passion to create new ideas around its instruments. By 2007, Snow’s Workshop has grown to 70 workers to fulfill the increasing market demand. As Snow approaches 2008, we came up with the idea of using today’s technology to make our violins more accessible to our customers by listing individual violins with their own pictures and sound sample on our new website. It allows the buyer to pick and choose through a number of models that are best for their own tastes at a convenient point.
