Matthys Hofmans - 1720

A warm welcome to new visitors, and grateful thanks to all our clients, world-wide, who have helped make this a most successful year.

Our collection of new and mature instruments continues to change and grow, with the inclusion of an interesting American violin by Dr Alexander Sved of Merrick, N.Y. dated 1942.

We are also pleased to act as sole UK agent for the fine baroque and modern instruments of Robert Blaszauer, master luthier, Budapest, who somehow still finds time to restore for us. Our repair service is guaranteed, with distance no object, no charge for estimates and full insurance for instruments in our care or in transit.
