Charles Samuel Thompson c.1780

A violin by Charles Samuel Thompson c.1780, labelled.

A nice old English violin from London. The violin is in excellent condition with minimal repairs for an instrument of this age. It’s tone lends itself more towards the chamber player. A sweet old sound and comfortable to play.


A testimonial from Sarah Evans

Took my rather sad and neglected handmade violin to Edward and he took it apart, removed the old glue including the lining, and stuck it all back together again. He added some new better quality pegs and tailpiece, sound post, bridge and filed the nut down as it was very high.

My violin is now a musical instrument again and I am very happy.

Would recommend highly.
