Orchestral Strings

Stringed Instruments at Forsyth Music Shop, Manchester

Our extensive range of stringed instruments now have their own climate controlled show room in our historic Manchester city centre store, est. 1857. Violins, Violas, Cellos, Double Basses and everything else that falls within the string family can be tried in there. We also stock a wide range of electric stringed instruments. The department is managed by string enthusiasts who take great pleasure in sourcing the best instruments and helping customers to select the instrument that suits their playing style, budget and ability, from complete beginners to professionals.

We frequently find beautiful antiques and way out modern pieces and we love to try them out and form our own opinions on them. If you are a strings enthusiast, why not pop in regularly to see what we have found? We are always happy to talk instruments with like-minded people.


Bows and strings, cases and rests, rosin and stands, you'll find a full range of accessories for your instrument here at Forsyth.
