Violin Specialists

Waters Violins offers honest individual advice to all customers, whether it be buying, selling, having a valuation or repair of instruments. We have a High Street shop with a dedicated practice room where players and their families can come and try instruments in private, and an approval scheme for instruments to be taken and tried at home.( We do suggest a phone call first to ensure that we will be on hand to help if you are travelling to try out instruments or bows)

Repair and setting up work is carried out on the premises by Peter Waters who will also offer valuations and certification, estimates for repair, and restoration work.

With a constantly changing stock, we predominantly offer old instruments but also carry a range of modern instruments that are carefully set up to a professional standard in our workshop, as well as fine quality old and new bows, cases and accessories.


Click on the green 'sales' button at the top of this page to view our stock of instruments available, or 'services' for details of our restoration, repair, re-hairing and other services we offer.

We always have an excellent selection of old violins, old violas, and old `cellos in most price ranges to suit all standards of player.
