Violins and fine violins

For many musicians, a violin is more than just an instrument. Especially old violins with their mature, individual character are true companions in orchestra playing, chamber music and solo performance. Our violin shop's online catalogue features unique antique violins and master violins that inspire the serious player with their delicate workmanship, selected tonewoods and fine antique varnish. Advanced and professional players alike appreciate old and antique violins for their richness in tone, and as a desirable alternative with a good investment value. Buy old and antique German, French and Italian violins online, and browse our special online selections of fine children's violins. The "Bows" section features our violin shop's attractive selection of violin bows. Search our website for violins of a special maker or origin by typing e. g. "Italian violin", "French violin", or "German violin" into the search box. Discover our premium selection of old and antique violins online: each one professionally restored by our luthiers and offered ready to play.
