Cremona Violin Shop: The Safest Place to Find a Masterpiece

Back to Blog
There are tons of violin shops all over the world, and when the search for the perfect violin starts, it can be hard to know where to go and who to trust. Among many great violin shops online there is us: Amorim Fine Violins Cremona. And how exactly do we stand out from everyone else? Why choose us instead of the other violin shops?

The Fine Violins available at Cremona Violin Shop

From online shops or not, Cremona violins are one of the best on the market nowadays. This we assure you. The city is known for its quality in instruments since the 16th century, thanks to the great master luthiers who lived and established their workshops in the town.  To understand why Cremona violin shops have so much value, we need to look at the history of the instrument.

In the early 16th century, Andrea Amati (1505-1577) invented the modern violin in Cremona, Italy. Amati violins were complex in geometry and design, but their shape was entirely new, setting new standards for visual and acoustic appeal. There have been many attempts (and failures) to modify the basic shape and geometry of violins, such as the guitar violin by Chanot or the trapezoid violin by Savart, but all have failed due to negative impacts on the acoustic performance.

As you may know, Stradivari was also responsible for making Italian instruments so good. The superior tone quality elevates Stradivari to the pinnacle of Italian violin making. 

Therefore, it’s all about the making. If one violin were superior to the other, it would be because of “the ingredients in the recipe.” A good violin starts with its maker’s choice of materials. Wood’s choice for a violin depends on the kind of music it will be made to play and the richness and power of the sound. 

Some of the world’s finest instruments are made from trees that originated in the Italian Alps. One section of the Italian Alps has been dubbed “Il Bosco Che Suona” (“The Musical Woods”) because of a combination of climate and altitude that produces particularly resonant spruce trees.

A handmade violin has a personality and its construction requires immense skill and precision. The maker knows what he is doing when he makes your violin, and that’s why it’s a timeless treasure constructed of the finest materials. It will give you something—namely, an experience—that an industrialized one can’t deliver.

The online violin shop is actually an online violin instrument gallery exhibiting the traditional conception of violin making from the Italian city of arts. By helping musicians worldwide to get the best Cremona violin at their doorstep, we work as a window from Cremona to the world for musicians to find their means of expression through the sounds of a violin.

Our outstanding Cremona Violin Shop

Our approach is unique; we feature the craftsman first because we want you to know more about the artists who create the masterpiece violins, to present the legacy of the great master of violin-making from Italy. That’s why we say we’re a virtual gallery.

We based our website on the real-life experiences of musicians, ensuring they could connect with an instrument before they purchase it.

Focusing on giving you as many tools as we can to make your decision easier. We’ve shot high-definition photos and videos that allow musicians to fully appreciate the richness of their violin of choice. When it comes to recommendations, we’re happy to help musicians choose their partner for life that’s right for them. We set up a series of video conferences, where our consultants will show musicians only violins that meet their needs.

A big part of what we think at Amorim Fine Violins is that a violin isn’t just a partner for life—it’s a work of art with all the emotions, feelings, and uniqueness of its maker printed right on it.

As a friend, our shop values the interaction between the team and the musicians, which we believe is very important for the makers as they can get real feedback on their violins. 

At our Cremona violin shop you can try, compare, ask for advice and then decide what is best for you.

We make the violin shopping experience easier by providing you with a platform that allows you to compare instruments and find the one that will compliment your playing. We ensure you a differentiated virtual experience using the highest levels of technology to make sure you will find your perfect match. In the tool you will be able to hear four selected instruments playing sequentially – all of the audios were recorded within the same conditions, same musician, same microphone, same place, same bow/violin, to guarantee a fair comparison.
