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. Marked by its original stained glass windows, white trimmed arched doorways and spectacular showroom, our Old Church has been host to a variety of businesses over the years; a Greek restaurant, chair manufacturer and a booking agency. The Old Church is now home to a world of music, with a expansive stage and showroom, on-site workshop and purpose-built music library. Please note, the store is closed on public holidays. We happily open on Sundays during summer.
Simply for Strings is an Australian owned and operated, Brisbane based string instrument specialist store. The company was founded in 2005 by good friends, Anna Andriolo and Toby Cumpstay. With quality you can see, hear, and feel, and having refined the balance between quality, sound and performance - our range of instruments is timeless and designed to last a lifetime. So. Whether or not you too (like us) feel moments of musical nerves during performance or you simply feel just a bit unsure where to begin - we’d love to invite you to join our family: A realm where music becomes magic.
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.
Simply for Strings Pty Ltd is a licensed Second Hand Dealer under the QLD Second Hand and Pawnbrokers Act (Licence No. 3132586).
