-A case of restored old instruments ready for sale

 

 

Most of the instruments in the photograph above are older, restored instruments, English, German, French and Italian, mainly from the nineteenth century, but some older.  We have sold instruments dating from the period when Shakespeare was writing his best work.  The price here ranges enormously, from a few hundred upwards and the stock is constantly changing, but may be easily ascertained by 'phone. Customers are welcome to bring in instruments for possible part-exchange, even if the instrument has not been bought from us.
--

We normally allow people to take instruments and bows on approval, to try at home or to show the teacher, before making a final decision.  We can not, however, send instruments to people unknown to us, unless payment is made in advance.  This will, of course be refunded if the instrument is found not to be suitable.

We sell both new and restored instruments at prices to hopefully suit everyone.  We start with new instruments from China and Eastern Europe in sizes to suit all ages, carefully set up to encourage the beginner. These may be part-exchanged against the next size as the child grows. They come in a variety of price ranges, but start at just under £70 for violin, bow and case.  We give a special bulk discount for schools and education authorities for these instruments.

We stock a comprehensive selection of strings and accessories for all the violin family instruments.  You are welcome to use our postal service for these.  We would advise you to phone rather than email us if these are needed very urgently, in order to check on stock availability.  Anything not in stock can normally be obtained within a few days.
