Instruments & bows

Any string player looking to purchase a new instrument or bow will be aware that it is a decision not to be rushed or taken lightly. The prices of stringed instruments are higher now than they have ever been and with a shortage of good quality pernambuco the price of fine antique bows is also on the increase.

A good violin or bow needs to be regarded as more than just a 'tool of the trade' as the right instrument could prove to be a worthwhile investment.


The selection of instruments and bows is always changing, though there is often something to suit a variety of violinistic tastes, ranging from old Italian instruments to 19th century French and English violins.

Current highlights include fine bows from the French, English and German schools as well as several instruments by important contemporary makers.

If we don't have exactly what you are looking for there is the option to source an instrument that meets your requirements, and it may be possible to part-exchange your instrument as part payment toward a new violin.
