Direct from the European master violinmaker Vasile Gliga, we bring to Canada the best Romanian stringed instruments at very competitive prices. We feature high-quality handmade violins, violas and cellos, as well as accessories - cases, bows, strings, shoulder rests, and chin rests. All of our instruments are available for all age groups and skill levels, from small size violins for children to specialty instruments for adults.
Romania is a country of abundant beautiful forests and many generations in the tradition, skill and art of crafting fine wooden instruments. Vasile Gliga is Romania's most famous violin maker creating one of the most trusted European violin brands, who started to use his own label, GLIGA, in 1991. Since then, his mission has been to bring affordable, high-quality violins to the world, and today these violins are available right here in Vancouver.
If you are a teacher and are open to more students we welcome you to list your studio in our violin teacher's directory. This is a free listing. We built this directory in response to our customers, advanced or beginner violin students, who are looking for a violin teacher in their area.
We invite you to visit our violin shop in West Vancouver to feel and hear the quality of our instruments first hand.
"By any measure, a violin is a thing of beauty, an object of extravagant curves and burnished surfaces, fragile and delicate in the hands yet powerful enough to fill a hall with soaring sound. But not all violins are created equal. . . "
