A selection of New and Restored Violins

As well as sourcing the best factory made branded models such as Paesold, Kirschneck, Hofman, Eastman, Gewa Maestro, Sandner, and superb brand new hand-made and expertly restored 19th and 20th century models, we also commission violins from the leading manufacturers in the Czech republic and China and sell these under our own Forsyth brand.

For the electric violinist, we have one of the countries largest selection of electric violin. Bridge, Skyinbow and Ted Brewer as well as more modest student instruments are available. 

With something just a bit different in mind we have a selection of violins with extended ranges such as a modern 5 string.
