We are very excited to be able to present our resident Luthier, Justin White and his exquisite  range of professional level instruments.

We have a number of his violins, which have taken their inspiration from the doyennes  of violin making, including Jacob Stainer, Andrea Amati, Antonio Stradivari, and Guarneri del Gesu.

We also have 2 of his Violas, which simply stated are awesome.

A number of professional musicians choose to play his instruments in professional orchestras.

One of the reasons often given is, the ability to find an instrument of this stature  at its price in Australia is nigh impossible.

If you would like to experience any of these instruments in person, please phone us, text or email.

About us


Our mission at Vivaldis is to provide our clientele with the best possible instruments, at the best possible prices, with the best possible service.

Vivaldi’s is a stringed instrument shop based in Epping, Sydney, that has been established since 2001. Being located in Epping, we service the Inner West, Hills District and greater Sydney area.

We carry a range of violins, violas, cellos and bows suitable for beginner to advanced players. At Vivaldi’s we consider it very important for all players, even beginners, to have an instrument with a high sound quality and level of playability. This ensures that the ears and fingers will be trained correctly and the player can enjoy making music, right from the start. We have therefore chosen not to stock the very cheapest, budget instruments – everything we sell has been carefully selected, set up and tested before sale.

Our address and contact details can be found on the contact page. We look forward to hearing from you.

Listen to David Pereira discuss the 400 Series cellos.



I am so thankful for Vincent’s help in finding a cello during a time when searching around was restricted due to Covid. His generosity in going out of the way to help, to offer options of instruments and bows and also find an appropriate case was so appreciated.

The beautiful instrument we now have is one to enjoy into the future.

Thank you.

I was recommended to view a Vivaldis cello by a teacher who was considering purchasing it for himself. I was looking to upgrade to a bigger sounding cello for university at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. It was a total stand out from the other cellos I’d seen; it had a rich sound and played with ease. It was on this cello I made a successful audition for my Bachelor of Music (Performance), and it continued to carry me through my entire degree and into professional work in chamber music, orchestral work including as a soloist and recording jobs. The cello responded very well to new bows and different kinds of strings allowing me to develop my sound over time.

Vivaldis is always a great choice; Vince is knowledgeable, attentive and charming. He is meticulous when it comes to the details and his prices are very competitive.

Some of my beginner and even intermediate students have purchased ‘entry-level’ cellos offered by Vincent at Vivaldi’s. Every one has been enthusiastic about their sound, build quality, fine setup, appearance, and value for money. They are new and inexpensive instruments that tend to sound healthy, ringing and clean, and yet with pleasing character and complexity. Vincent is a true musician and conscientious businessman. I’m very pleased and proud to teach cello out of  the Cottage next  to Epping Uniting Church.

I had very specific requirements for the violin I wanted. It had to be a relatively rare 7/8 or ladies sized violin that not only sounded and looked great but was affordable. Vincent hunted diligently and presented many for me to try. Over a span of five years, we tested various Italian, French and German violins, aged from thirty to two hundred years. They were all fantastic but not ‘The One’ for me. Finally, he presented me with a Manfred Gregoric 1988 and it was love at first note, literally. Then, we went through a few choices for perfect chin and shoulder rests. So, if you’re in the market for a good violin, Vivaldi’s is where you will find a most patient violin shop owner who will work assiduously to match you with one that is perfect for you.
