SoundPost Strings

SoundPost is a specialist stringed instrument shop- (we are the 'original Soundpost')- established since 1972. We hold now a very small stock of strings mainly for our own 'studio ' use, but can supply if possible from stock or to order, or via mail order. Our 'product knowledge' and experience is second to none.

Categories: Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, Classical guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Viola da Gamba, Lute, Early guitar, Nyckelharpa, in fact anything bowed or plucked
Pirastro, Larsen, Jargar, Innovation, Warchal, the Thomastik range ie Dominant, Vision, Infeld and others, Helicore, Savarez, d'Addario, Corelli, Prim, Kurschner, and many others.

Pricing and Policy: We have finally conceded to the 'online sellers,' so have dramatically cut our stock accordingly. Our prices are as good as any you will find online, so please do call for any specific strings you may want- we may have them or can order them, and can give you 'best advice' on what might suit. We do not charge VAT.

Please remember also that some apparently low-priced 'online' string sales may in fact be counterfeit products.

Visitors to the studio are welcome, by prior appointment only: Opening times and all contact details and directions are on our 'Contact' page.
