Welcome to String Shack

String Shack has been established specifically for the needs of violin, viola and cello players at all levels from beginner to professional.

The String Shack ethos is to provide a fast and reliable string and accessory service, making purchases both simple and cost effective for everyone.

While many other internet companies offer low cost strings and accessories, String Shack has the benefit of being affiliated with J.P.Guivier & Co. Ltd, the oldest violin dealers and restorers in Great Britain.

J.P. Guivier & Co. Ltd has the import and manufacture of strings at the core of its origins in 1863. The company has long since moved away from string making but is now in the unique position of being able to combine that heritage with our skills and knowledge as one of the leading instrument and bow dealers and restorers.

We are therefore able to provide the best advice about string combinations and tone qualities, together with recommendations about accessories pertaining to violins, violas and cellos.

All string orders over £5.00, sent within the UK, will be sent free of charge, and our string pricing offers a minimum saving of 25% over the RRP.

Please feel free to browse through our website as we are adding new products all of the time, and if there is something that you cannot find, let us know and we will do our utmost to make it available to you.
