With in-house expertise, our clients can be completely reassured that they know exactly what they're buying. We also guarantee future trade-in on all purchases, so we are able to offer complete peace of mind all-round. All of our instruments are accompanied by the internationally recognized certificate of Florian Leonhard, 'world authority on fine violins' (the Financial Times). 

The Team 

FLorian's nicolo amati copy

With a constantly expanding stock, from high quality German and French instruments to the very finest examples of Stradivari and Guarneri del Gesù, Florian Leonhard Fine Violins offers extensive options at every level.

Buying an instrument can be a daunting process for a player. The service we provide reflects our understanding of this, and we endeavour to act with patience and integrity. The limited number of high-end instruments available in the world means that demand is constant, and we take pride in our ability to deliver outstanding violins, violas and cellos of superb all-round quality to our clients at all times.
