Instruments

At Simply for Strings, we go through a stringent quality assurance process whereby each and every single one of our instruments are not only hand-crafted but also hand-checked before it arrives at the hands of their new owners. With quality you can see, hear, and feel, and having refined the balance between quality, sound and performance - our instruments are timeless and designed to last a lifetime. As string players ourselves, we hold a nuanced understanding of the anatomy of a stringed instrument. To us, it’s not just about hearing, playing or reading the notes. It’s about the feeling of limitless creativity. And the understanding that every grain of wood, every musician’s individual journey, every intricate detail that turns the humble instrument into a beautiful tool of musical expression. The world of strings is one of soul and science and we can’t wait for you to join us in the realm where music becomes magic. Enjoy fast and safe delivery across Australia, including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Hobart and Adelaide. Happiness Guaranteed.
