Sales and Supplies
The main focus of String Instrument Repairs is the restoration of string instruments and as such we don't have retail premises, however the workshop is open, by appointment, and I am able to supply a full range of fittings, accessories, cases and strings most of which I have tested and used in the workshop on a regular basis. If I don't have a particular item available then I can usually source these from my suppliers within a very short period of time, often on a "next day" basis.
I also stock a wide range of strings for all bowed and plucked instruments and which are suitable for students through to the professional player, for example:

If you would like to discuss this with me then I would be happy to advise you. I am also able to supply "reconditioned" violins and outfits periodically, if you are looking for something in particular then I'll be happy to help you in your search.
