Small-sized violins: 3/4 violins and 1/2 violins


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


The children's violin has a dubious reputation, especially since children's violins represent the screeching and squeaking of almost every violin player's early years. Many parents and young players are not aware of the quality of old small-sized violins, a desirable alternative to a new factory instrument that has a stable resale value. Corilon violins online catalogue presents old and antique 3/4 violins, 1/2 violins and selected 1/4 violins for sale, approved and professionally worked over by our violin makers, at fair and reasonable prices. Discover a surprising better sound quality with your old 3/4 violin that will please both the player and the audience. What is more, children and youths will be inspired by the charm of a historical German, French or Italian children's violin. Search our website for small sized instruments of a special size by typing e. g. "old 3/4 violin", "French 3/4 violin", or "antique 1/2 violin" into the search box.
View violin size chart. Corilon violins presents German, French and Italian 3/4 violins, 1/2 violins and 1/4 violins, each one approved and restored by the qualified violin maker in our wokshop and offered with 30 days returns and trade-guarantee, ready to play.
