Thomas Yee

I'm a dedicated Concert Artist, Teacher, Orchestral Musician, and Instrument Dealer living in the San Francisco Area.

In January 2016 I founded the boutique violin shop Bay Fine Strings partnered with Jou Music in San Jose and represent master workshop, antique, & contemporary violin family instruments & bows and their accessories. My mission is to provide personalized instrument acquisition empowering the music community with quality instruments to be inspired to play. Viewings are by appointment only, email I can ship select instruments on approval. You can visit to see current inventory.

I trained classically growing up, finishing a BM and MM in violin performance at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, but my musical interests also include other genres. I perform with my wife, Jieun as the Yee Duo (violin and piano), Tango Del Cielo, and guitarist Jose Rodriguez as Duo Revirado. You can check out my e-concert clips at and personal website

I currently play a Guarneri inspired modern Frank Ravatin violin from 2014 and bows by Stephane Thomachot, Edwin Clement, Charles Espey, and Robert Morrow.
