Buying a violin online – online violin shops and mail order companies

Online violin shops: an overview

Buying a violin online has long since lost its stigma, despite the misgivings that many musicians still have about the topic. Even though no online violin shop can substitute for trying out a violin for yourself and seeing what impression it makes on you, buying a violin online via the Internet offers indisputable advantages. Not only the extensive historical background information prepared by some premium online violin shops, the wide-ranging selection of instruments, too, alone gives musicians a dazzling spectrum of choices. While most online violin shops offer inexpensive mass-produced factory instruments, only very few specialized premium sources offer antique violins for sale, fine masterpieces, historic works and other rarities.

The overview provided here is intended as a point of orientation about the most important online violin shops available to customers in the US.
