From beginners to intermediate
Please click here to read our "setting up for success” article.
At Cardiff Violins, we believe that a careful selection of a beginner's first instrument is crucial for the future enjoyment of music making. It has always been our policy to supply instruments that work well at affordable prices. For these reasons, we upgrade inexpensive Chinese instruments that will end-up cheaper than non-upgraded European instruments, yet work much better than a lot of them!
We have a wide range of instruments at different prices available. It is difficult for us to tell you exactly when to change to a new instrument, because it depends on what the player wants to do with their music, how enthusiastic they are, if they or they parents feel they deserve another one, if their teacher thinks they need to upgrade, if they are going through the grade system, or if they just want to treat themselves to a better one!
As this page is still under construction, please bear wih us as there will be more information and photographs of our instruments to come!
Please do not forget that we can take your first instrument in part-exchange (if you have bought it from us), so do bring it along! If your first instrument was purchased somewhere else, we will try and help you buy your next one, by part-exchanging it, but cannot promise to do so, as it depends on the make and condition.
Please call us on 029 20 22 77 61 to discuss your needs or for more information.
