At Bows for Strings we offer a range of second-hand instruments and antiques for sale. To find out more, we encourage you to give the shop a call, or visit us today to see our range.


At Bows for Strings, our trade-in service is a fantastic way for growing musicians and musical families to proceed through the many instrument sizes - from 1/64 all the way to 4/4! 

We guarantee the trade-in of every instrument sold by Bows for Strings when a customer purchases the next size or an instrument upgrade (i.e. trading in a 4/4 violin for an upgraded 4/4 violin).

If you didn't purchase your instrument from us, we can also offer you a trade-in, however this is subject to inspection and our discretion.

If you are no longer playing your instrument that you purchased from us (we're sorry to hear it and think you should give it another go!) and are wanting us to buy back your instrument, then again we are more than happy to discuss this with you. We do not guarantee instrument buy-backs where there is no trade-in, so again this is down to our discretion.

To discuss your instrument trade-in or buy-back, feel free to give us a call or drop into the shop and chat to one of our musicians.
