Tim Toft started in the violin business over 30 years ago. Since then he has established himself as a respected international dealer and consultant. He is also an adviser on matters of instrument authenticity, provenance and investment to many professional bodies. He is always happy to discuss instrument matters, be it with a beginner or an owner of a fine Stradivari.

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 rooms specially designed for the purpose.
