• Violins

    Christchurch Fine Violins exclusively sells antique violins. We strongly believe that only well made and well maintained antique violins that have been regularly played, have the maturity and quality of tone that violinists have always sought, and will always desire.

    In our antique violin inventory, we stock mostly full size violins but always have a few high quality 3/4 size instruments. Our violins range from European hand-made trade instruments from 1880-1920, through to instruments dating back to the 18th Century from England, Germany, France, and Italy. Prices start from $1200.

    All of our antique violins and bows are professionally set up, and restored if necessary, by Hanna Krause in our opinion one of New Zealand's finest luthiers. 

    Carlo will personally assist you, with honesty and integrity, in choosing the violin that suits your playing style and budget.

    Uniquely we offer a 100% trade-in* on all instruments purchased from us.
