Small-sized and children's violins: 3/4 violins, 1/2 violins and 1/4 violins

Children's violins have a dubious reputation, especially since they 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. Our online catalogue presents old and antique 3/4 violins, 1/2 violins and selected 1/4 violins, 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 restored by the qualified luthiers in our wokshop and ready to play.
