Our Story

Since 1993, Austin's premiere string shop, Violins Etc, has supported professional and student string players in the Live Music Capital of the World. Locally owned, Violins Etc. was established on the principle that high quality and low cost are not mutually exclusive. At Violins Etc, we strive to assure that you or your child’s musical experience is a pleasant and rewarding one. We pride ourselves in offering quality instruments at affordable prices. We offer a wide range of instruments from fractional sizes for your little one to advanced instruments for the experienced musician.

Violins Etc. is staffed by experienced musicians who understand the challenges our customers face. Our knowledgeable staff have the experience necessary to match each player with the right instrument.

Stringed instruments are our specialty, not guitars, drums or pianos, and our experienced professionals set up and maintain all of our instruments here in the shop.

Just getting started? Looking to get back into playing? Rocking out with a band? We are eager to help you achieve your musical goals. Stop in today!
