FOR SALE - Full size cello, with strong case on wheels. This was bought new from Gear4Music but, due to the owner finding that she needed (and subsequently buying) a 3/4 size instrument, this has been hardly used. Since purchase, the bridge has been upgraded by a luthier to a new French adjustable bridge, and the cello professionally set up to achieve the best quality. The attractive price of £300 includes a bow, rosin, and the very good case. Buyer collects from Yaxley, near Peterborough. Contact 07802 403551.

FOR SALE - Full size violin, bow and caseA very nice clean instrument with quite a good tone plays well, the bow is in very good condition; you are welcome to come and try before deciding to buy. The case is a little sad so has a strap around it . Only for sale as I decided it was time to hand on some of my instruments that are not getting played as much as they should. I have had this violin for a few years as a good spare but now have another that I use as the spare. Retails new for around £320 new - price here only £200. The current description for this violin is "the Stentor Conservatoire violin outfit is chosen by intermediate players and above and often recommended by teachers as a step-up instrument for students. It offers a high standard at a reasonable cost. The instrument is hand carved from attractive selected tonewoods and the violin outfit is complete with a professional style oblong case and good quality bow. The Conservatoire has a carved spruce front and carved flamed maple back and ribs, finished in Stentor's Shellax varnish. With ebony fittings. It comes with a selected wood bow with natural white horsehair and full mounted ebony frog." Buyer collects from Yaxley, near Peterborough. Contact 07802 403551.
