We believe that young and growing players should be able to learn on student violins that sound good, but parents are generally (and understandably) unwilling to spend a lot of money on something which will only be used for a couple of years, so the standard remains poor.
Our solution to this is to offer high quality new and antique ½ and ¾ instruments with a trade-in guarantee. This means that if you buy a small instrument from us and wish to upgrade after a couple of years, we will take it back and credit the full purchase price against a larger instrument. If the condition of your smaller instrument has deteriorated significantly, we will negotiate a trade-in price which is fair to you.
We sell antique small size violins and also make new part size violins, violas and cellos. To find out more about our new instruments click here
