These are the most popular violins and violin outfits (an outfit includes the case and bow) sold by Beare & Son. Every instrument is thoroughly checked and properly set-up before sale. Pegs, fingerboard nut, soundpost, endpin, tailpiece and bridge are all fitted, re-fitted or replaced to ensure the instrument will perform to its' absolute best.
A lot of workshop time is spent putting right problems with instruments that have been bought elsewhere and brought to Beare & Son to be sorted out. Buying direct from Beare & Son means you will get it right first time.
Our best advice to customers who are tempted to buy on price alone is "just because it looks like a violin in the picture doesn't mean it will play like a violin".
