8 Prominent Violin Stores in the Philippines

February 28, 2016


With over 7,000 islands, the Philippines is one of the world's largest archipelagos, which means that a centralized source for equipment is not feasible – let alone practical, –and that stores selling violins may be so far from each other. This is a shame, since the country is populated with amazing string players. In order to make the search easier, we have compiled a handy list you can refer to when buying violins in the Philippines.


1. Violin Village



A Filipino violin store that specializes in recreating 17th- and 18th-century violins by the old masters such as Stradivarius and Guarneri and making them available to the Filipino string community for a fraction of the cost.

The largest music store chain in the country, Lyric sells popular brands of violins such as  Bachendorff. While a majority of Lyric's branches are scattered in most of Metro Manila's malls, it also has stores in several provinces including Pampanga, Laguna, Batangas, and Cebu.
