The Hexham Violin Shop

Dealers, restorers and makers of fine new and reproduction instruments. We specialise in the sale, repair and restoration of violins, violas and cellos.

The Violin Shop is that rarest of things these days, an establishment run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts. We have a large stock of violins, violas, cellos, basses and bows so that we can cater for a broad range of individual tastes and needs.

All our instruments, regardless of price, are in excellent condition and set up to the same exacting standards. We believe that all our customers should be given the same level of care and attention, whether child or adult, amateur or professional, and whether selecting an entry level instrument or a rare and old instrument or bow.

We also stock a wide range of accessories that we can recommend on the basis of personal and customer experience.

We have a strong base of loyal, regular customers and this has grown over the years as they recommend us to others.

Our low overheads have enabled us to hold prices to levels considerably below those asked in London.
