Fine Violin – These instruments are available for in home trial. Contact us for details.
A fine violin has exceptional tonal qualities that are by historic makers with fine craftsmanship and superb wood selection. These instruments are collectible and will appreciate in value over time. All professional orchestras require applicants to own a high quality instrument in order to audition. Requirements vary from orchestra to orchestra, but the general range is that you must own a violin valued between $10,000 and $25,000 minimum just to audition. Some might consider this the threshold to be called fine. Because of these reasons, a fine instrument can be an exceptional investment in your music career and also as a financial investment.
We primarily carry instruments from Italy, France and Germany. Some of these are listed below. Some are still in restoration including an early Italian labeled Pietro Guarnieri dated 1720. All violins are available for in-home trial. Please contact us for details.
