Tuesday the 6th of March - an extra day open!

For the convenience of our customers who were unable to visit us when we were closed due to the snow on Thursday and Friday, we will be opening for an extra day - Tuesday the 6th of March, from 10am to 6pm.

We look forward to seeing you then!

Saturday the 2nd of March

I will be opening the shop today so that you can pick up instruments, bows, strings etc... Opening times will be approximate, depending on the state of the roads.

Update 9.54am - the shop is open.
I did say that opening times would be approximate, I didn't expect to arrive early! Thank you to the farmers for clearing the lanes around the villages. The A30 west bound between Ottery St Mary and Exeter has one lane completely clear and one lane largely clear. The roads around Exeter seem to be largely but not completely clear. If you're venturing out onto the roads today then please take it easy and allow extra time for your journey.

See you later!

Friday the 2nd of March - Snow Day

We will be closed again today due to the snow. Hopefully conditions will improve tomorrow - please check our website for updates.

Stay safe and warm!
Jon and Becky

Thursday the 1st of March - Snow Day

We will be closed today due to the snow. We will hopefully reopen tomorrow as normal - please check our website for updates.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

1 Bartholomew Street West, by Sarah Downing

We are a professional violin shop and workshop in Exeter, Devon serving players of all levels.

We offer a good range of violins, violas and cellos, bows, strings, cases, sheet music and accessories suitable for beginners to professionals.
We discount all violin, viola, cello and double bass strings by 10%!

We are professionally trained violin makers, experienced in the repair and restoration of violins, violas and cellos, and also mandolin family instruments. All the instruments that we stock are offered properly set up - with a hand carved bridge, a good quality well adjusted soundpost, well fitted pegs, accurately shaped fingerboard (essential for accurate intonation) and good quality strings.
