Well, simply because we provide the best at the lowest price we can provide. And by the best, we literally mean our word. VMA knows it’s the best because we’ve been in this industry for over 20 years, and literally tried almost everything out there in the market, and worked with the biggest international brand names and companies.
Violin Music Academy – Online New Zealand shop. Special deals, only in New Zealand! We bring in international violins and products for everyone Kiwi!
No one else can beat our deals and rates at the moment in NZ. If you find someone who can, let us know – because we’ll want to buy as well!
Over the past 3 years we’ve experimented with over 10 different pieces and models of violins available on the New Zealand market. Yes, we have tried everything. Some are extremely cheap, and some are more expensive. But none can compare to the sound of my lowest range violin we have in our store. Ask us for our findings and we’ll say. So, we’ll leave the imagination and conclusion to you! ūüôā
Our mid to high range violins all comes with a certificate of authenticity. Why? Because we understand value and investment.
The certificate is your assurance of the authenticity of your instrument or bow. Our expert authority is respected worldwide. If you purchase a professional-quality instrument from us, a certificate will be provided at no charge. In some certificates, a set of photograph is attached.
*Unfortunately, you won’t find us putting pictures of the certificates up here as samples for various reasons. Neither will you have much luck when you google for pictures. (Same logic as if you won’t put your birth certificate online.)
In some companies and shops, the cost (per item) for Certification is 4-6% of the appraised value (with a minimum cost of USD$750).
A certificate of APPRAISAL is different. It just tells you how much a violin can be worth before tax. But without a Certificate of Authenticity, the violin is worth little or even nothing years down the road.
Having a certificate of authenticity will ensure the value of your violin remains, it will normally almost guarantee your violin’s value will increase over time, as the workmanship of your violin maker’s and reputation increases over time.
Hope that helps!
We are currently setting up a friendly user interface for our online shop.

What does your purchase price include?
1) Combo packages on every violin. Varies from violins to violins. You won’t find such good freebies anywhere else in NZ. The entry range already comes with $60 worth of freebies! Beat that~!
2) GST and Freight already included in the price. So don’t worry, no more additional charges.
3) And all the luthier workmanship, professional set up, etc have been included. We might also already have installed premium quality strings for you on the violin for free.

**Goods sold not refundable**

Now, you’ll need to understand we’re in New Zealand. We are about 5000 miles from the main performing fine arts hub that supplies quality instruments -Singapore. Our New Zealand currency is very close to the Singapore exchange rate, so it’s an advantage.
The only drawback is that if you were to buy from our Singapore store directly Yourself, you face a freight charge of +NZD$160 +NZ CUSTOMS GST 15% and approx +$80 CUSTOMS PROCESSING FEE +Bank currency conversion charges +Bank T/T fees +Insurance fees.
I’m pretty sure you can work out the maths from here.
How about Aussie? Unfortunately We haven’t fully spearheaded into their market so I can’t say, but in general the commercial products are the same in NZ, but the drawback is that their currency is much higher, thus by the time something worth AUD$100 reaches here in NZ, it will become over NZD$350 – nah, we don’t want that until we can find a good and trustable supplier.
So, how come we can sell our products at a rate lower than the NZ market rates and in store? Simply because we have worked out our connections and enjoy privileged deals, and pass on the discounts to you!
We want to be as honest as we can, so Hope that explains!
Contact us to get directions to our partner stores. Rates reflected on this menu is for New Zealanders only. Special rates applies to Singapore sales.

We generally try to provide FREE SHIPPING (courier + tracking) on all orders so you don’t need to incur additional costs!¬†We also have insurance shipping options.

German Master Luthier:
LOTHAR SEMMLINGER

logo

Lothar Semmlinger was born in Langensendelbach (Germany). He soon started to learn about the construction of string instruments. After his school period and under the direction of Master Albert Lang he learnt how to building string instruments. After that, when he was still very young, he worked with Karl Hofner improving his knowledge and skills.
In 1975, when he finished his studies, he got the title of “Master Craftsman of Bow Instruments” of the craftsmen Chamber of Numberg. He worked as a master for four years in Mohrendorf in the company Dilk, and in 1980 he opened his own workshop in Baiersdorf, which is known, as well as Mittenwald for its instruments and its luthery school.
He started to build his own instruments, and continued working with Benedikt Lang, to which he was very close through his master Albert Lang. Later, in 1994 he got in charge of Benedikt Lang according to the wishes of Lang Company. He started to build high quality instruments with his two sons Stefan and Christian and two assistants.
Semmlinger’s instruments are characterized for their deep acoustic pitch and their great sound power. His instruments remind of the quality of those of the old times, both in the sound and in their finish.
He has done the reproduction of “The lady of Miwa” (a jewel, replica of the famous baroque 1623 violoncello of the Italian luthier Tomaso Castelli). His latest challenge has been to use new types of wood for his instruments: Italian poplar. This wood hasn’t been used in instruments before because it is softer than maple.
