Aitchison & Mnatzaganian are dedicated cello specialists. We provide cellists with a unique and comprehensive service, focusing our expertise on every aspect of cello care:
Stock of fine cellos. We offer fine cellos for sale. Robin Aitchison also takes commissions for new instruments, which are closely studied copies of fine originals by Stradivari, Montagnana and Guadagnini.
Stock of cello bows. We have a fine stock of antique and contemporary cello bows available. We are contemporary bow specialists and now run a year-round exhibition called Take a Bow 365. Every contemporary bow sold raises funds for the International Pernambuco Conservation Initiative.
Sound Adjustment. Cellists travel across Europe to work on set-up and sound adjustment with Robin, who transforms the sound of their instruments through work on the bridge, sound post and strings.
Cello Care Guide. We publish a a free 24 page illustrated booklet showing how to safely care for both cello and bow. To order up to ten free copies (UK only) click here.

Three times a year we publish a newsletter for cellists which includes specialist articles, news updates and information about future events and publications, plus selected instrument and bow stock lists. If you would like to receive a regular copy of this newsletter, please contact us stating whether you would like us to send email or paper versions.
