We have a large stock of violins, from student to intermediate instruments. With such a large fleet, our stock is constantly changing. We have used, nearly new, and brand new instruments in stock. Many of our instruments are available for rent. Consignment instruments are often in store. Our used instruments have been thoroughly cleaned and set-up before resale.
We carry Romaninan-made Gliga violins as well as violins from Eastman Strings, Heinrich Gill, Ivan Dunov, Gliga, Jay Haide, our in-house line of instruments: Moar Instruments, Strunal-Dvorak and Suzuki. As our inventory is constantly in flux, please call or visit to learn more about our current stock.
Our in-house line of antiqued string instruments, Moar instruments, have been well-received by many members of Vancouver’s music community. Visit our dedicated Moar Instrument page to find out more, including fun photos of the process of instrument-making.
We love Gliga Violins for our student violins, and so do our customers!
See how violins are made at the Gliga factory in Romania:
Our student violins are quality instruments, with real ebony fingerboards and pegs, Wittner tailpiece with 4 fine-tuners, high quality strings and a chinrest.
We primarily carry Eastman and Gliga models in our student violin department.
We have violins, violas and cellos in ALL SIZES! Come in to fit your child with the right size instrument. We can help you find the right size for your child.
Each student violin purchase or rental includes a hardshell case, a real wood Pernambuco bow (or carbon-fibre if preferred), and rosin. That means you are ready to go with one simple price, either for rent or purchase. Other string accessories are available for purchase, including sponges and shoulder rests, extra or replacement strings, and practice and orchestral mutes.

All of our violins are fully and properly set-up by our in-house luthier Ian or our string expert Randy. Proper set-up means that the instrument will be in good working order when you get it, with proper bridge placement, proper soundpost placement and a quality, straight bow. Randy and Ian are available to help you change your strings, fix a sticky peg, change your chinrest or tailpiece. We also restring bows, repair cracked instruments and offer many other repair services. We have a someone available in the store for any basic assessment 7 days a week. For more complicated repairs, please visit us Monday through Friday.
