Fine String Instruments and Bows – Sales, Repair & Restoration
in Camden Town London and Brighton
As a musician, your choice of instrument is one of the most important decisions you will make.
when choosing quality string instrument it is essential that you get the right advice from an expert.
As a musician with many years experience I am particularly qualified to advise and guide you in the right choice.
My life as a musician started as a prize-winning student with the legendary William Pleeth, studying alongside Jacqueline Du Pres
I have been a leading musician in London as, cellist, gambist and teacher and have recently left the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as a long-standing member.
In latter years I have developed a reputation as a connoisseur, repairer and dealer in string instruments specialising in the cello. I have received practical advice from Colin Nichols, one of London’s premier luthiers. In fact I have made my own cello which I play on professionally!
We offer instrument sales, adjustments and repairs of the most exacting standards from student to master instruments and are able to provide a professional service to ensure the instrument is optimised to suit you.
To get the best tonal response from an instrument it is important to understand it intimately and to be able to undertake the necessary adjustments.
