Stentor Violins Gloucester

Stentor violins are the main teaching instruments in Britain’s schools. All instruments are hand carved from solid  tonewoods with good quality pegs and  fingerboards. Stentor is the only independent company with a wholly owned violin factory workshop in China. As a result, Stentor instruments have the essential characteristics of good tonal quality plus consistent quality control. The Stentor factory workshop is located in Jiangsu province, north of the Yangtze river and about 300 km north west of Shanghai.

Stentor Music Co. Ltd sells more violins than any other  company  worldwide  and  offers  unequalled value. Stentor  has  been  known  to  orchestral  stringed instrument players and teachers for more than 100 years.   According   to   Greek   mythology,   Stentor was  a  herald  with  the  voice  and  volume  of  “one hundred other men together”. Edward C. Doughty, a  Professor  of  Music and teacher of the violin, registered the name ‘Stentor’ in 1895 for gut violin strings and rosin.

Since the 1960s, more than 500,000 young musicians have begun their musical careers with a Stentor instrument. Many of these same violinists and cellists are now to be found in major orchestras and the teaching profession of today.
