Evans-Pughe 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 sales@strings.co.uk if you would like to make an appointment to try instruments on another day.
