The Charlie Byrne Guide to Violins is based on four generations of experience in selling musical instruments, from our shop in Dublin, Ireland.

From the first Charlie Byrne (circa 1870) onwards, we have amassed many simple tips and tricks to help you get past the pitfalls involved in choosing a violin.


We also aim to demystify some of the jargon you as a new player or parent of a beginner will encounter.

This guided is aimed primarily at novice players, who are buying a first instrument although we include a segment on upgrading to a better violin.

This is not a sales guide for our shop—we have carefully avoided referencing our own range of products. Rather this is designed to be an aid to buying anywhere in the world, from any shop
