As always we encourage our customers to come to us when purchasing an instrument to ensure the instrument is set-up correctly and plays easy. As an instrument repair center, we provide instruction on the care and maintenance when you puchase any violin from us.
Violins are unique in their own way. For example, there are no frets on the violin and have a sound post. The sound post is a small dowel of spruce that is held by friction between the top and back plates of a violin situated under the treble side of the bridge. It has both structural and tonal importance.
Structurally, it supports the top plate, acting like a pillar under the bridge. Violins come in all different sizes for the younger players.
How to measure for the proper violin size. Measure from the middle of the left palm to the neck, with left arm and hand fully extended out perpendicular to body (as if holding a violin).
Violins come in nine different sizes: 4/4, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/10, 1/16, and 1/32.
We carry a variety of new and used violins ranging in different sizes.
