We carry Romaninan-made Gliga violins as well as violins from Franz Sandner, Heinrich Gill, Jay Haide, Moar InstrumentsStrunal-Dvorak and Suzuki.

Student Violins

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 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.

Visit our Orchestral Strings Accessories page

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 repairs 7 days a week.  For more complicated repairs, please visit us Monday through Friday.
