Dave Noble was born in 1949 in NewYork City to musical parents. His first two years of studying the cello were with a very fine lady and cellist from the New York Philharmonic and were to further his musical motivation for much of his professional life. His college days were spent at the University of Colorado where he was a student of Jurgen De Lemos (cellist of the Pablo Casals trio and principal cellist of the Colorado Symphony). There, he met David Reeve, a third generation luthier at Boulder, which was to lead to a longtime association and friendship.

Noble Brothers Violin Shop is a continuation of the Fort Collins Music Emporium that opened in 1991 in Fort Collins, Colorado. A new shop then emerged with David Reeve of Reeve Violins, and Dave and Kris Noble, moving to the Longmont area in 2001 and becoming the Noble Brothers Violin Shop in 2008.  It now serves the entire Front Range, extending services as far east as Virginia and as far south as New Mexico and Texas.  After the passing of his brother Kris, Dave continues to serve as one of the areas foremost makers and luthiers.

In Memorium of Kris Noble, beloved brother and highly accomplished luthier.
