Since our founding in 2004, we have amassed an impressive collection of modern and old violins, violas and cellos made by renowned luthiers from all over the world. On this page youíll find just a few of our favorite examples on display, though pictures do little justice to convey each instrumentís unique character and beautiful tone. If you see something you like, we extend a warm invitation to come visit our shop and audition the instrument for yourself!

1-Week trial loans

Our workshop has a private practice room for you to try out our instruments to your heartís content. However, weíre well aware that it takes time to truly discover all the qualities of an instrument, which is why we offer 1-week trial loans to customers interested in making a purchase. We ask only for you to make an insurance deposit on the instrument that is waived if you end up buying it. 


We're here to help!

We want to satisfy your curiosity and to ensure that you are completely happy with your purchase. You are always welcome to call us for initial enquiries on any of our violins, violas or celli, or to schedule an in-shop appointment. We love what we do, and are glad to answer any and all questions that you may have at any stage of the purchase process.
