Aitchison & Mnatzaganian Cello Specialists offer an exceptional service to cellists throughout the world. We are dedicated to providing the highest level of professional support to cellists, including the set up and sound adjustment of instruments and the production of world-class cellos in our workshop.

Robin Aitchison is a renowned cello maker and his instruments are played by professionals and soloists throughout the world. There is currently a 12 month waiting list for his instruments which are close copies of original cellos by Stradivari, Montagnana and Guadagnini. The Academy of Ancient Music produced a beautiful film about Robin and his work which you can view on the YouTube link on this page.

Sarah Mnatzaganian assists cellists in buying and selling cellos and bows through our popular Cello Exchange service, ensuring that the needs of both the owner and purchaser are equally and fully addressed.  Terms and conditions  can be viewed here, along with feedback from a wide range of cellists who have used the service.  We also specialise in international contemporary cello bows, holding a fine stock of bows by some of the world’s greatest makers.

Our thrice yearly newsletters contain a combination of technical and practical articles and reviews which are also published on this website.  If you would like to join our free mailing list by post (UK only) or email, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We warmly welcome feedback about our website which aims to be a source of information for cellists worldwide.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any ideas for future articles or reviews, or if you would like to pass on any of your own experiences as a cellist.
