Stentor violins are the main teaching instruments in Britain's schools. All instruments are hand carved from solid tonewoods with good quality pegs and fingerboards. Stentor is the only independent company with a wholly owned violin factory workshop in China. As a result, Stentor instruments have the essential characteristics of good tonal quality plus consistent quality control. The Stentor factory workshop is located in Jiangsu province, north of the Yangtze river and about 300 km north west of Shanghai. Stentor Music Co. Ltd sells more violins than any other company worldwide and offers unequalled value. 

All wood is carefully selected and dried before use and moisture content monitored using British made testing equipment. Carving is done by hand by workers who are trained at every stage. Tools used are a mixture of Chinese craft tools and specialist tools made in Europe; each worker being responsible for maintaining their own tools. Quality is constantly monitored to ensure that instruments meet exacting specifications.

Stentor has been known to orchestral stringed instrument players and teachers for more than 100 years. According to Greek mythology, Stentor was a herald with the voice and volume of “one hundred other men together”. Edward C. Doughty, a Professor of Music and teacher of the violin, registered the name ‘Stentor’ in 1895 for gut violin strings and rosin. Since the 1960s, more than 500,000 young musicians have begun their musical careers with a Stentor instrument. Many of these same violinists and cellists are now to be found in major orchestras and the teaching profession of today.

  The Stentor Messina is the first in Stentor's range of high-grade orchestral models. These are superb handcrafted instruments, carved from selected and figured tonewoods. The Stentor Messina violin is made in a specialist hand workshop within the Stentor factory, where the most skilled individual workers produce under the close supervision of a master maker, in a traditional luthier's environment that would be familiar to makers throughout the centuries. The result is a fine instrument with a superior finish and sound. The violin is carved from solid tonewoods and finished with a hand-applied traditional shellac varnish and fitted with professional quality branded strings. All instruments are individually workshop fitted.
