Workshop

At Beare’s in London we have our own workshop of highly-skilled craftsmen, internationally recognised for their expertise in restoring fine old violins, violas, cellos and bows (generally in preparation for sale). They also produce a limited number of exceptional new instruments, either to their own design or modelled on the work of the great Italian violin makers.

Beare’s restorers and luthiers are internationally recognised for their expertise in restoring fine old violins, violas, cellos and bows (generally in preparation for sale). They also produce a limited number of exceptional new instruments, either to their own design or modelled on the work of the great Italian violin-makers. As part of Beares’ service to their customers, the workshop also maintains and repairs instruments that they have already sold, many of which are played in the world’s greatest concert halls.

With a total of over 100 years experience, Beares’ craftsmen have also trained restorers from around the world, thus helping to raise international standards of instrument care and restoration.
