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.

The Story Behind the Name

Most of the time, people ask, “Where did the name, lemur music, come from?” It is a short, sweet story. In 1964, Leah and Murray Grodner started lemur music to supply bass students at Indiana University. When Murray retired in 1995, Toni and Jerry Buffa bought the business. The name was kept; 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.
