Dedicated to Helping Talented Musicians Around the World

At lemur music in San Clemente, California, we specialize in offering unique double bass instruments. For more than 50 years, we have helped various individuals start their careers with our products and eventually become professional musicians.

When Lemur Started...

Lemur Music was founded by Leah and Murray Grodner in 1964 to supply bass students at Indiana University. When Murray retired in 1995, Toni and Jerry Buffa bought the business. Lemur is known worldwide for the highest quality customer service and best bass products.

As of 2021 Lemur Music is now under new ownership by longtime employee Tammy Jo, (A.K.A “T”)

Tammy Jo has been working in the music industry for over 25 years. The last 22 years she has spent in the double bass world, working with top musicians to promote the instrument. T has dedicated much of her life to working and volunteering for many non-profit organizations that raise money so students can own their own instrument, take lessons, attend music schools, music camp and master classes to help fulfill their love and passion for music. 

Why Choose Us

Our team is here to help you keep playing bass and support your gigs, studies, and musical passion. Whether you live close by or on the other side of the world, we will go above and beyond to help you become a professional double bass musician.
