With over 140 years’ experience in selling Stradivaris, Guarneris and other Italian masters, J & A Beare’s collection of instruments is of the highest calibre. Many of the world’s top musicians (Yo-Yo Ma and Isaac Stern included) frequent the place. In 1998, Beare’s joined forces with Morris & Smith, London dealers, and together the firm offers expertise and advice in the buying and selling of stringed instruments and bows as well as valuations for insurance purposes. The majority of the violins, violas and cellos are antiques, but there are a few new items. There are experts on hand to appraise and advise on restoration and repair.
