Simply for Strings is based at 78 Enoggera Terrace, Red Hill. Marked by its original stained glass windows, white trimmed arched doorways and spectacular showroom, our Old Church has been host to a variety of businesses over the years; a Greek restaurant, chair manufacturer and a booking agency. The Old Church is now home to a world of music, with a expansive stage and showroom, on-site workshop and purpose-built music library. We are open 9-5 Monday to Saturday, with no appointments necessary. We are closed on Sundays and public holidays.
Simply for Strings is an Australian owned and operated, Brisbane based string instrument specialist store. The company was founded in 2005 by good friends, Anna Andriolo and Toby Cumpstay. Simply for Strings specialises in high quality violins, violas, celli and double basses, bows, strings, accessories, sheet music and instrument repairs. We are constantly working towards meeting teachers needs, and have a specialised school manager, Teegan Dowdell, who is able to help your school meet its musical potential. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer hospitality, and our team of professional musicians, teachers and performers can’t wait to help you.
We offer a trade-in service for instruments purchased at Simply for Strings upon upsizing/grading at our discretion. Our trade-in policy offers up to 40%, depending on the value and condition of the instrument. The cost of new strings, repairs and maintenance will be deducted from the trade in value in order to make the instrument saleable. Our trade-in policy only applies to another instrument of equal or greater value.
Simply for Strings Pty Ltd is a licensed Second Hand Dealer under the QLD Second Hand and Pawnbrokers Act (Licence No. 3132586).
