Hill & Company shop

Hill and Company is one of Hertfordshire's leading dealers, repairers and restorers of violins, violas, cellos and bows. We are the third generation of a proven family business and have been in our current premises for over thirty years. We have chosen as a specialist shop to only deal in instruments and bows of the violin family.

Our standards are high for every item that we sell, even when setting up modest instruments, so that young players are not struggling with inadequate equipment that will hamper their progress.

• Expert repairs and restorations carried out in our workshop.

• A wide selection of violins, violas, cellos and bows for sale.
