Small Strings

Traditional and contemporary stringed instruments crafted in Northumberland. We make traditional and contemporary stringed instruments — mainly mandolins (carved and flat top), fiddles and violas, but occasionally we make related instruments like mandolas, citterns and bouzoukis, and also guitars.
