These distinguished brands are a fine addition to Violins Australia’s existing lines including Otto Jos Klier, Hagen Weise Violins, Klaus Clement Violins, Peak Music Stands, Everest Shoulder Rests, Bow Hold Buddies, Otto Musica (Artino), Takt Batons and Aubert Lutherie. Violins Australia is now a second generation business with David and Carmel’s son Douglas and daughter Libby managing most operations.
