About Vegter Violins

Hugo Vegter has been active in Cork and its environs since 1989.  In 2014 Vegter Violins was established and joined forces with Patterson Violins in the Cork city studio workshop at Camden House, Camden Quay - directly across the river Lee from the Cork Opera House.

We have an on-site showroom that has over 50 different instruments available for sale, with just as many bows for Violin, Viola and Violoncello.  For viewing and trying out instruments we advise customers to make an appointment in advance so that we can ensure that the instruments required for the desired price range are in situ for the required day.

Hugo Vegter has specialised in Instrument and Bow repair and restorations for over 20 years.  When undertaking any repair or restoration job Hugo meticulously plans and records the work involved to enable the instrument or bow to be finished in the most conscientious and professional manner possible.

Niamh Vegter has worked in various roles and industries working in Quality, Administration and Office Management for over 20 years.  Niamh volunteered to assist her brother Hugo in setting up Vegter Violins in 2014 and manages the administration of the office and web site.

Both Hugo and Niamh Vegter inherited a strong sense of quality of workmanship and dedication to quality from their parents and both bring entirely different sets of expertise into the management of the workshop.
