Fittings & Accessories
In addition to selling instruments and bows, and doing repairs and restorations, we also stock a comprehensive range of accessories and fittings for the violin family. New variations on these appear all the time, and although these innovations are not necessarily a great improvement on what was there before, some definitely are. Before buying something on a whim, or on well meaning advice from another player, it is a good idea to look around at what might be available.
