Who We Are
Violin Parts Trader is an online community of instrument lovers working to extend the life of valuable string instruments that have been irreparably damaged but may still contain parts that can be reused in other similar instruments.
What We do
There are many valuable instruments from well-known makers that cannot be repaired due to damage to some part of the instrument. In many cases the damaged instrument may contain parts that still function or can be used in/within similar instruments.
Instead of writing off the damaged instrument completely, Violin Parts Trader attempts to bring the makers work back to life by locating an instrument that can make use of the usable valuable parts. This
- Adds to the value of the repaired instrument
- Prevents the maker’s work from disappearing
- Extends the life of valuable instruments – can be used and enjoyed longer
- Maintains a vibrant community of instrument makers/repairers through discussion and exchange of knowledge and techniques that were used to create these beautiful instruments.
