Welcome to Cardiff Violins, Wales’ largest violin shop
We offer thousands of stringed instruments, bows, cases and accessories, catering to every level of player, from beginner to professional. Our experienced luthiers provide violin, viola and cello repairs, routine maintenance, restoration, set-ups, bow repairs and bow re-hairs.
Bow Rehair & Repairs
We provide rehairing services for walk in customers, or can complete the work via post. We use only the finest Siberian or Mongolian horse hair – and can provide high quality Coruss synthetic hair for vegan players or incredibow users.
Vegan Bow Makeover
Over the years, there has been an increasing demand from customers for items free from animal products. Some are concerned about animal welfare and would prefer ethically sourced items, however some are vegan and refuse to purchase anything animal based. To meet this demand we have introduced a bow “makeover” that will replace all animal sourced parts with synthetic or ebony replacements.
Coruss Bow Hair
Coruss not only matches horse hair’s tonal quality in blind studies, it also possesses greater strength and durability! We offer Coruss Bow Hair and re-hairing services in store or by post!
Insuring your instrument, case and bow against loss, theft and damage is essential. If you choose to insure through us with one of the companies we introduce, we can value your instrument for free.
Selling Your Instrument
We know parting with your instrument can be like saying goodbye to a beloved friend, so we’ll take care of your sale and ensure your instruments finds a good new home.
