Strings was established in 1997 in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, UK, to meet the needs of string players of all ages
and abilities. We specialise in violins, violas and cellos by contemporary British and European makers but also hold some older instruments and run a popular rental scheme. We are open three days a week: Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (9.30am to 5.30pm). Phone or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make an appointment to try instruments on another day.
Antique instrument rental: In addition to our usual student violins and cellos, we now have some full sized antique violins and the odd viola available to rent. Phone us or drop in if this is of interest.
