Antique Instruments

Antique Violins, Violas & Cellos for Sale

I sell antique instruments of the violin family. Only when the instrument has been meticulously checked over and any work required has been completed, is it allowed to go out on approval.

When the instrument is ready to be played it will have;
A correctly planed fingerboard
A new sound post
A new bridge
A correctly fitting set of tuning pegs
The correct sting clearance at the nut and the end of the fingerboard
No open cracks or seems
 




When purchasing your next instrument I believe it to be essential to feel reassured and have the knowledge your instrument is in perfect working order and without any nasty little surprises to appear down the line.
