Stringers of Edinburgh Spring 2017 Newsletter
Tuesday, 21 March 2017 11:49

Friday, 03 March 2017 00:00


We have vacancies for experienced restorers in both our London and Edinburgh workshops.


Applicants should be experienced in all levels of repair and restoration of violins, violas and cellos. Bow rehairing skills would be an asset - but this is not a necessity.



Stringers provides services to string players from beginner to professional level. Our workshop managers are keen to train apprentice restorers in repair and restoration techniques.


Also, in our London workshop, there is an opportunity to train with our senior bow restorer (who previously taught bow making and restoration in Cremona).


NB: a three bedroom flat is available above our Edinburgh premises.


Letters of applications, with current cv, should be emailed to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

LC1556-Front Website Resized


Born in Vils, Austria, Tomaso Eberle flourished as a maker in Naples from 1750 until his death in 1792. Eberle drew major influences from the Gagliano school, evident within the outline of his instruments. His violins are finished with Neapolitan style golden varnish.

This magnificent violin by Tomaso Eberle is a true testament of his skilled craftsmanship. Formerly owned by a renowned English soloist, it has been featured on a number of commercial recordings. The violin produces a warm, clear tone with plentiful projection, balanced across all registers. 

- Tomaso Eberle fecit. / Neap. 1784

- Length of back: 354mm

- String playing length: 324mm
