Here at Cardiff Violins we have plenty of gift opportunities for the musician in your life. All items linked in the article can be purchased through our online shop, and will be delivered within three working days. Not all stock is yet available through our relatively new online shop, so we invite our customers to visit the shop where we have a much wider range of stock and special offers available. Orders can also be made by calling 029 20 22 77 61, where our trained staff can advise you on your purchase, and as with online purchases, your order will be with you within three working days. ALL OFFERS LISTED BELOW ARE AVAILABLE WHEN BUYING AT THE SHOP OR ORDERING BY PHONE, AND WILL EXPIRE ON 24TH DECEMBER 2013.
For orchestral and other travelling musician needing to practice regularly in hotels, we offer a range of mutes, including the particularly popular Baroque Bling, available in an array of colours and designs and perfect for anyone wishing to add some sparkle to their instrument. Our mutes are currently available through visiting the shop or ordering by phone on 029 20 22 77 61.
Extra sets of strings never go amiss with serious players, particularly students, whose incomes often do not permit them to afford the high quality strings they require. Until Christmas, we offer 15% on the purchase of 2 sets of strings. Call 029 20 22 77 61 or visit the shop to make the most of our Christmas string deal.
Rosins, Designer Decals, shoulder rests, metronomes, tuners, musical jewelry, stationery and stands make great stocking fillers. 10% discount when 3 items are purchased together at the shop or on the phone.
Coloured violins, Designer Decals, and Baroque Bling mutes make the perfect gift combination for young string players. The novelty value of coloured instruments plus the ability to customise any case or instrument with the decorative decals can inspire a child whose enthusiasm is waning when it comes to practice. Decals are also a great way for parents and teachers to reward good practice. Slumps experienced due to persistent technical difficulties can be easily alleviated by the simple yet powerful Things 4 Strings; attractively designed attachments to the bow that allow the pupil to assimilate the correct right hand technique automatically, reducing the amount of practice time allotted to technical exercises, thus freeing up more time for repertoire. Buy one "Things 4 Strings" and one Designer Decal and get 10% off by visiting the shop or calling 029 20 22 77 61 to order.
Providing much needed relief for those suffering with arthritis or repetitive strain injury are Wittner pegs; pegs made in the "machine head" style typical of guitars. Not only do they protect pitch from knocks and bumps to the case to a greater degree than standard wooden pegs, they are far easier on achy joints and injured arms, as the motion is far less strenuous. 10% off for all pegs purchased before Christmas at the shop or on the phone. They need to be fitted professionally, and this may be done at a later date.
All musicians will appreciate the choice to revive their instrument after a long period without laying or prolonged time in the cold. Tonerite devices are perfect to play in instruments at an accelerated pace. 10% off if you buy before Christmas at the shop or by calling 029 20 22 77 61.
And most importantly, we wish you a wonderful Christmas & New Year from Magdalena, Angharad, Laura, Joe, Katja, Mick, Dan, Cecile & Chris.
