Where are your instruments made, and are they ready to play?
Simply for Strings sells its own specialised brand of instruments as well as a selection from well-known makers around the globe. All of our instruments are fully hand-carved and are crafted in Chinese and European workshops. Every instrument is beautifully hand-made using high-quality tonewoods to ensure the best result for the player. Every instrument undergoes a professional setup by our team of professional luthiers to ensure excellent tone, projection, and easy playability. The entire Simply for Strings team is dedicated to playing each and every instrument post setup to find one that suits your needs.
Do your instruments come with a warranty?
Yes! Our warranty is 12 months from date of purchase and covers the instrument for manufacturing defect. We also offer FREE 3-month servicing on all our instruments to ensure your musical partner is performing its best.
Do you accept trade-in instruments?
Yes we do! We offer a trade-in service for instruments purchased at Simply for Strings upon upsizing/grading at our discretion. The trade in value is dependent on the value and condition of the instrument. The cost of new strings, repairs and maintenance will be deducted from the trade in value in order to make the instrument saleable. Our trade-in policy only applies to another instrument of equal or greater value.
Can I bring my string instrument to you for repairs, servicing or restoration?
Yes. Simply for Strings' team of full-time professional luthiers offers high-quality repair work at competitive prices. We assess and quote your repair in-store before it is repaired at our on-site Makers Studio. Servicing and repairs can take up to 7 business days to be completed. Our expert team will be able to advise you of a time-frame upon instrument inspection.
Can I try before I buy?
Of course. You're most welcome to try any and all of our instruments in-store. Our friendly team consists entirely of musicians who can also demonstrate our instruments for you. Simply for Strings is located at 78 Enoggera Terrace, Red Hill, just a quick drive north of Brisbane city. We are open 9-5 Monday to Saturday, with walk-ins and appointments welcomed all week.
