School’s Out!

School’s have broken up, the sun is shining, what’s not to like?

The summer holidays are a great time to look for a new instrument ahead of the new term. You can take your time, try lots of different ones, and then familiarise yourself with your new instrument ahead of lessons restarting in September.

We have a great range of traditionally made instruments, 100% hand crafted by European luthiers, starting from less than £400 that are suited for all grades from improvers to professionals. We even have a range for left-handers.

Give us a call to arrange an appointment or simply pop in during opening hours to see our selection and try them.

Timing

Our #WednesdayWisdom today is about time and timing.

However, we’re not talking about music timing and time signatures but the time you can expect to wait for an instrument.

If you take an instrument from stock then you can have it pretty much immediately.  In fact, if you call into The Old Dairy to buy it you can walk out with it there and then.

If it is something we don’t currently have in stock we can contact our luthiers and see whether they have one in their showroom.  In which case you need to allow a week or so for us to receive it, check it over to ensure it hasn’t been damaged in transit, and then get it to you.

23-worth-the-waitHowever, because we work closely with our wonderful luthiers you have the option of having pretty much whatever you want hand-crafted to order.  Should you decide to take this route then you’ll need to be patient as it’ll take a minimum of three months to lovingly create your instrument.

This means if you are thinking of getting an instrument for Christmas it is too late to have one made to order and you will need to take one from stock.  The good news is that, as with previous years, we will hold it for you at The Old Dairy up to Friday December 23rd (24th by prior arrangement only).
