Stefan-Peter Greiner

J & A Beare is delighted to work closely with one of the leading international luthiers, Stefan-Peter Greiner, whose instruments we also sell and represent to our clients. Peter’s violins, violas and cellos are sought after across the world and an increasing number of world-renowned soloists are choosing to play on his instruments including Kyung Wha Chung, Christian Tetzlaff and Kim Kashkashian.

Peter’s instruments are normally subject to a five-year waiting list. However, as the only firm to represent Peter Greiner in the UK, J & A Beare is pleased to offer clients the opportunity to try out Peter’s instruments and acquire them after a relatively short period, if not immediately.

All of Peter’s new instruments are sold with a two-year guarantee: if the buyers are not satisfied with their purchase, they can exchange them for a new Greiner instrument (subject to terms and conditions). All buyers benefit from a personalised service from the maker himself, both pre- and post-sale, for set-up, adjustment and advice.

Through our boutique auction house, Beares Auctions, we are also proud to sell at least one of Peter’s instruments in auction every year.

If you are interested in acquiring a violin, viola or cello by Peter Greiner through Beare’s, please contact / +44 (0)20 7307 9658. To find out more about Peter Greiner, please visit his website at

As part of J & A Beare’s partnership with the Kronberg Academy, Peter works closely with Kronberg Young Soloists to provide advice for the care of their stringed instruments or bows, including sound adjustments, in addition to the support offered by the renowned
J & A Beare workshop.
