Welcome To Moseley Violins

It is our policy to give fair and honest advice keeping our customers needs in mind. Players can use our wealth of making, repairing and selling experience in the trade of over 35 years, to help you select an instrument or bow . Players and their families can visit us to test and compare our stock in our private trying out room. We also offer an approval scheme to enable chosen instruments or bows to be tried at home and be shown to their teacher.


Professional Players at your Service

We understand the decision process can be quite difficult finding the ideal instrument or bow to meet all your requirements.

By special appointment, we have the services of professional local players, Amanda Lipman, and Graeme Littlewood, to help you hear the instruments that you would like to consider within your price area and help you assess their tonal qualities.

Both are available by appointment basis.

We are also undertaking to record our better stock instruments for sale.

You can find sound bites of our stock recorded on the instrument pages on the website.

PROFESSIONAL CHOICE: It is far safer to ask a professional to help you identify which instruments are on offer. Our stock is regularly hand picked from our specialist suppliers and auction rooms in the UK, Europe, China and the USA. We will be more than glad to guide you along in order to get complete satisfaction from a violin , viola, cello or double bass that benefits from having been thoroughly checked out. You can choose from a range of antique, modern handmade and second-hand violins, violas, cellos and double basses. We also stock a range of wood and carbon bows, strings, music books, cases and accessories, and a selected range of fretted instruments.

REPAIRS AND RESTORATIONS: All work is carefully assessed and carried out to professional standard on the premises. We also specialise in making instruments of high quality to customer order. We can offer free verbal assessments of the condition of instruments and bows, and provide estimates for repairs and restorations and insurance quotations.

VALUATION CERTIFICATES Our specialist knowledge is founded with over 35 years in the trade. We can offer a free verbal valuation for instruments brought to us for examination; whereas a fee is made for a "letter headed" full insurance certificate, as per value.

INTERNET SALES: Beware: stringed instruments purchased over the internet are often a source of disappointment. The simple fact that many are not set up properly, will cause more headaches than bargained for. Initially, choosing the right size for the intended player is a challenge.

ELECTRIC VIOLINS: You will find info on our electric violins, violas, cellos and double bass, specialist advice, supply and fitting of instrument pickups and amplification on our web www.electric-violins.com, Complete info about our custom made Violectra, made by David Bruce Johnson, can be found at: www.violectra.co.uk

It is our goal to ensure your instrument is comfortable to play on and performing at its best.
