✨🎻PRO TIP🎻✨
(Violin descriptions below👇🏼)
When shopping for instruments, check out the shop’s full selection, not just instruments in your current price range or skill level. Any instrument purchase is an investment and when it comes time to upgrade and trade-in your instrument, you want to have options to chose from! At Terra Nova Violins, we have an extensive inventory of instruments and a lifetime trade-in policy. When you purchase an instrument or bow from us, you get the peace of mind knowing that you only need to pay the difference in price between your current instrument or bow and your new one. We have instruments perfect for every price range and skill level, take a look at these beautiful violins on the table:
• Terra Nova Violins Classic Violin
• Nikolaus Ostler Model 4
• Jay Haide Vuillaume
• Ernst Heinrich Roth, 1956
• Paul Hart, 2021
• Johann Gottlob Ficker
• Honoré Derazey, 1850

John, a proud new owner of a beautiful viola by Lawrence Wilke, left us an amazingly kind review, check it out below! 👇🏼🎻
In his review, John likens finding the perfect instrument to selecting a fine wine - a perfect analogy! Whether you are a fresh beginner or longtime professional, we are here to help you every step of the way in selecting your new instrument! We take great pride in providing excellent customer service while showcasing our extensive inventory. To new and old customers alike: thank you so much for your business, we greatly appreciate it! We love being your local string shop for all services big and small, and look forward to assisting in your musical ventures for years to come 🙏🏼🎶
“We visited Terra Nova Violins in Austin to select a viola as a wedding gift. Anna offered us white glove service reminiscent of a bespoke suit commission or Diagon Alley wand fitting crossed with a Michelin Star tasting menu. She prepared a selection of violas on a counter height table and handheld us through how to assess them, as a sommelier would explain tasting notes in Napa. I barely touched a viola in the past decade, and butchered the first eight measures of Bach's Courante repeatedly, maybe 2 - 3 times for each of the dozen or so instruments I sampled. However, Anna was patient with us and did not visibly grimace at my fumbled shifts and persistent flatness. She maintained a positive attitude, friendliness, and clear intent to help me find my viola soulmate. Aside from the excellent service, we also liked how Terra Nova offers the option to trade in instruments effectively at cost. While we do not intend on giving up the viola we adopted (which we named "Lorenzo"), we noticed how Terra Nova has a much broader selection of instruments across price points than some of the other shops we visited, yielding seemingly unending opportunities to continue to grow and upgrade into instruments in their inventory. It was a true pleasure working with Anna. We will return soon for my fiancée's next cello, and also plan on visiting Terra Nova's San Antonio location. We would strongly recommend aspiring (and rusty) musicians visit them.”
