Violins, violas and cellos for sale

Facebook icon

At our shop on Hampton Hill High Street we carry a wide range of violins as well as violas and cellos.

All instruments come in a range of sizes - from 4/4 to 1/64 - so there is something for even the youngest child to play. We are both violin players and are passionate about helping our customers find the right instrument.

On all old restored instruments we offer a two week approval period for you to try out the instrument and perhaps discuss suitability with a teacher.

On restored smaller sized instruments we offer a generous trade-in value against the future upgrade to a full size restored instrument (subject to condition upon return).

We also buy good quality and older interesting violins, violas or cellos. please contact us if you have an instrument you wish to sell.

Making a decision

"'I picked up my cello today, which you kindly set up properly after a less-than-satisfactory job from a generic music shop chain. The sound is richer and clearer, and the corrections you made to the fingerboard make it so much easier to play. It is hard to believe it is the same instrument! What a useful lesson in the cello: Always go to the experts; it is worth every penny. Thank you so much."

"Dear Hugh, I just wanted to thank you very much for being so kind and supportive over my sons violin. You and Sophie were very reassuring and have done a lovely job. I shall certainly recommend you to others. It's great to have businesses like yours that treats customers in such a good old fashioned personal way rather than process you like robots. I am very pleased I found you and thank you again."

"'Thank you for all you have done for me and my cello!!! "
Best regards, Loretta

"Violin arrived safely this morning, I love it and have been playing it since it arrived. It is just the size I needed and very well set up. I am very happy with it, so thank you for everything."
Best regards, Elaine
