Stringers Outfits

Stringers prides itself on providing the best quality of instrument for every level of player. For the benefit of children, students and amateur players we have developed a range of Outfits (instrument, bow and case) which are available in violin, viola, cello and double bass.


There are five Outfit levels which range from violins, violas (including viola conversions) and cellos suitable for beginners of any age, to the level of instrument that might be required by an advanced student.


Stringers Outfit instruments are made to our own specifications by trained craftsmen, from solid tonewoods.The instruments are set up and adjusted in our on site workshops to ensure that the bridge height and curve is correct; the soundpost is in the correct position and that the pegs and tuners turn smoothly. The bows are also checked to ensure that the stick is straight and strong, the hair is of good quality and that the screw mechanism is in good working order.
