Blue Danube Violins is an Austrian company based in Vienna, serving professionals, emerging professionals, beginning and advanced students, teachers, amateurs, public and private schools world-wide. We ship to customers anywhere in the world.
Besides modern instruments and bows from the region’s best makers, we offer a number of antique instruments and Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic-era replicas. Most can be “made to order”. Each instrument is unique and we invite you to make an appointment to play several instruments in your price range. The instruments currently in stock are listed on our website.
A violinist himself, Anthony Armoré, together with leading concertmasters and soloists from the region, plays and hand-selects each instrument or bow before acquiring it for our customers. Many of our instruments are prize-winners (especially for tone) in competitions organized in these countries. Mr. Armoré frequently conducts professional orchestras in Europe and his discussions with string players and other artists lead him to the best makers. Each instrument and bow is evaluated for quality of tone, workmanship and value. This is also true for our student and intermediate-line items.
