Violin family instruments

We stock a large range of violin family instruments from student level upwards.

The next level of new instruments are individually handmade in Europe & China with an antiqued finish based on Stradivari, Guarneri & Maggini models.

We also have our own range of handmade violins, violas and cellos providing excellent quality and value for money for the discerning student, serious amateur and semi-professional player.

The Symphony, Sonata, Concerto, Artiste & Partita are graded and available in Rosewood, Ebony and Boxwood fittings.

We also have a good range of 18th. & 19th.c instruments in stock. Each of these has been carefully restored & set up in our workshop.
