Alex W.Grant Violins Collingwood Shop


We are pleased to introduce our baroque pages featuring our growing range of instruments, bows and strings.

Over the years, we have had several individual baroque items in stock but never a proper ‘range’, so to speak. The early music scene, in our experience, has been largely self-contained but as it grows in size and importance the need for consistent, reliable supplies will become indispensable. Enquiries from customers asking us to establish a more fully stocked baroque range have been heeded.

Like all good things, we are starting ‘small’ but are looking forward to this area growing in the future.

To find out more about any of these instruments or bows, please contact us.
