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. E-cards of Monsieur Beaujolais and pals can be found here.
Our grade 2-listed building is under major renovation and while we are aiming to maintain a normal service for customers 9.30am to 5.30pm Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, we may not always succeed. Please bear with us (and keep an eye on the website) in the meantime. We expect the work to be finished by Summer 2014.
