Bows, strings, cases & accessories

Enhance your playing and protect your instrument

GDF Violin’s Arcofacile range of accessories go hand in hand with the instruments and musicians they are complementing.

Some accessories such as strings are of course essential and cases important. But the Arcofacile range features some tried and tested and innovative items that can make life easier for the student and teacher, or enable a more experienced player to excel.
