Maureen Morrison (née Stringer) founded the violin shop Stringers of Edinburgh in 1992 and opened Stringers in London in 2007.
As a professional 'cellist, teacher and parent of young string players she wanted to create a centre of excellence for string players of all levels from beginner to professional in a pleasant, relaxed environment.
All members of Stringers staff are proficient string players and are happy to help and advise when required. Our fine strings department comprises instruments (violins, violas, cellos and double basses), bows and accessories for advanced students and professionals and all of the instruments are set up by our consultant restorers and are played by our staff before going on sale. Our spacious studios are available by appointment and instruments and bows may be taken out on approval upon payment of a modest insurance fee.
Our educational / student department caters for less advanced string players of all ages. At Stringers we recognise that buying a musical instrument can be a daunting experience. Most of our staff are former string teachers and can therefore provide assistance and support to students, parents and less experienced adults.
Both branches of Stringers violin shop have dedicated on site workshops which offer a bow rehairing service and repairs for all levels of instrument. Both our London and Edinburgh shops also stock a wide range of musical instrument accessories, including strings, rosin and cases.
