Consignments

Cremona Fine Violins is constantly seeking instruments of quality for our clients. If you are interested in releasing your instrument back into the marketplace we can help you find a good home for it. All consignment instruments will need to be restored and adjusted before listing them. The cost of this will be the responsibility of the seller.
