Instruments | 3/4 violin and 1/2 violin


"Every note leaves its mark, not on the surface but on the heart."


The children's violin has a dubious reputation, especially since the 3/4 violin and the 1/2 violin represent the screeching and squeaking of almost every young violinist's early years. Many parents and young players are not aware of the quality of old and antique 3/4 violins and 1/2 violins - a desirable alternative to a new factory small-sized instrument. Corilon violins online catalog presents 3/4 violins and 1/2 violins for sale, old and antique instruments of quality and with a trade guarantee, at reasonable prices. An old 3/4 violin will please both the player and the audience with a surprising better sound quality. What is more, children and youths will be inspired by the charm of a historical German 3/4 violin, a French 1/2 violin or, if talented, even an Italian 3/4 violin. Search our website for small-sized violins of a special size by typing e. g. "3/4 violin", "1/2 violin" into the search box. View violin size chart. Find German, French and Italian 3/4 violins and 1/2 violins at Corilon violins, each one approved and restored by the qualified violin maker; and offered with 30 days returns, trade guarantee and optional certificate.
