There is also a collection of older restored violins/cellos from the Czech Republic, France and Germany available to try out. In addition to sales and rental of high-quality hand-built instruments, we have a very large range of string supplies, all at very affordable (online) prices; including our own brand Animando®. Read our article on "hand built" versus "factory violins" here . In addition to the rental and sale of instruments, our Italian violin maker Ornella Ceci, who is present full-time, also carries out maintenance and restoration/repairs in our workshop. Orenella also builds beautiful new violins and violas. You are very welcome in our store in The Hague to try instruments from our collection or to pick up orders.

We do our utmost to keep all products in stock and the relevant page also indicates whether a product is in stock. Unfortunately, it may happen that a customer places a large order for a certain type of string and that the stock is therefore insufficient. If you need a string or set urgently, please indicate this when ordering, so that we can inform you in a timely manner whether the string is actually in stock. The supply of strings by manufacturers has been problematic since the Corona crisis and wholesalers are keeping increasingly smaller stocks, which unfortunately increases delivery times.
