Our shop is situated in the delightful market town of Stone in Staffordshire. Our three-storey building, which dates from 1820, offers customers fitting surroundings in which to view and try out instruments of all eras.
We have an extensive range of old and modern instruments spanning the baroque, classical and modern periods - one of the largest in the UK. Customers are welcome to try out instruments on the premises in one of several special rooms designed for this purpose.
We pride ourselves on the standard of the repair and restoration service we provide for all instruments and bows. When working on better instruments our emphasis is on conservation. We aim to preserve as much of the original as possible in order to retain the character of the instrument. Most repairs are carried out on the premises under the auspices of our head of workshop, Helen Pegram. Helen trained at the Welsh School of Violin - making and has worked in several workshops, including World of Basses in Reutingen, Germany.
