Lemur Music | Everything for the Double Bass...
Today Lemur Music is located in historic San Juan Capistrano, California where we have our Showrooms, Performance Studio, Internet Catalog Services, Repair & Restoration Shop, and manufacturing facility for ONYX Musical Products.
We are frequently asked, “Where did the name, Lemur Music, come from?” It’s a short, sweet story really. In 1964 Leah & Murray Grodner started Lemur to supply his bass students at Indiana University. When Murray retired in 1995, Toni & Jerry Buffa bought the business. Of course we kept the name; Lemur is known world-wide for the highest quality customer service and best quality bass products.
But we also kept the name because it seriously appealed to our sense of humor. “You know, the lemur is the lowest form of primate, so it’s just natural he plays Bass, The Lowest Form of Music.” and my favorite … “We’ve got Friends in Low Places” …
Lemur Music is here to keep you playing bass – to support your gig – your studies – your musical life. I speak for both myself and our staff -- business is all about the relationship between us and our clients, between Lemur and our vendors.
