Consignment Sales

We are always on the look-out for exceptional instruments and bows for our advanced and professional ranges. We offer a wide variety of both new and antique fine instruments and bows from Italy, France, Germany & Australia. Our customers trust us to deliver the best items to suit their needs and we pride ourselves on our ability to match players with their perfect instrument.

If you have a high quality instrument or bow that you wish to sell, we have customers both local and abroad who are ready to purchase. To be considered for a consignment sale, your instrument must meet our high standards & be in sellable condition*.

When selling your instrument through us it will be displayed in our award-winning showroom after being assessed by our experienced workshop for on-site restoration & tone optimisation. You will gain access to our large international customer database not only through our physical store but via our online platforms such as our website, Facebook, Instagram & Youtube. Our knowledgeable team of players and luthiers will research an accurate & current sale price for your instrument. We will regularly play your instrument to keep it sounding at its best & present it in the best light with relevant information regarding its history, maker & time period to interested customers.

If you would like more information regarding consignment sales or you have an instrument you think that we may be interested in, please contact laura@violins.com.au. Please attach photos of the front & back of the instrument & scroll. If you have a bow please attach photos of the side & front views of the frog, the tip & length of the bow. Please include any photos of relevant paperwork such as a certificate of authenticity.

* The final decision to take an instrument in on consignment rests solely with 'The Sydney String Centre.'
