Violins, violas, cellos and bows for sale


Colourstrings Australia also sells new and secondhand violins and bows.  We deal in small fractional-sized instruments for children, and also in master instruments and bows for professional players. 

Master instruments are set up by violinmakers including David Patterson, Robert White and others.  Student instruments are set up to our exacting standards either by these violinmakers or by Yuri Djachenko under their close supervision.  Yuri's extensive experience as a performer and a teacher of children adds to the expertise of the violinmakers and this collective knowledge ensures that instruments are set up and adjusted according to the needs of a child at a particular level of playing.  We have sold instruments and bows to players in all states and territories in Australia and also to New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Finland, Sweden, the UK (including one to a student at the Yehudi Menuhin School), and to the USA. 

While we also sell cheap bows, our Master bows are rehaired, cleaned and adjusted by leading bowmakers including Jim Ellender and Lennox Holt (Australia), Philip Brown and Bill Watson (UK), and Michael Taylor (Spain).  Yuri Djachenko has been researching English Bowmakers for over 20 years, and is respected internationally for his knowledge about bows, English ones in particular.
