General Information on our Stringed Instruments

We offer a small selection of handmade master size violins, violas, cello, for advanced players up to professional level. We offer part-exchange, (subject to T's and C's, enquire please ). We offer full warrantee on all instruments we own ( does not apply to consingment sales) and offer a 2 week approval period subject to 'Terms and Conditions. All instruments are set up to ensure maximum ease of playing and tonal optimization, and the handmade new instruments and high quality antique instruments are fitted with only the very best fittings and strings.

We also give priority to repairs and service for customers who purchase from us, and include an annual 'health-check' for your instrument, free. We also give free insurance valuations for all instruments purchased from us. Our personal service and experience is 'second to none', and there are not many who can match our 46 years of professional experience.

Private Treaty sales: We now offer for sale via 'Private Treaty' various selected instruments, and these are indicated at the time of sale. Part-exchange cannot be extended to these instruments which are being sold on behalf of the owner, as no warrantee applies to these sales. We are actively looking for high quality instruments for clients, and this scheme may be the ideal way to bring buyers and sellers together: click Here for Terms and Conditions
