About us.

Maple Violins was founded in 2020 by our director Tom Palmer as a platform for buying and selling fine stringed instruments of the violin family securely online at a time when travel was severely restricted. Tom has over a decade of experience, working daily with some of the greatest historic instruments in this field. Whilst the same advantages of our way of working remain in place, we look forward to meeting more of our clients in person as the situation allows. Please see a list of our upcoming valuation days to see if we are visiting an area near you and please get in touch for free advice on value, selling and buying options. The highest level of personal service remains our priority in the sale of these fascinating instruments and their bows.

I hope you enjoy visiting Maple Violins and we would be delighted to hear from you with
regard to any of our services, feedback and support.

Delighted to report that my new kidney is working well and a huge thank you to everyone who has offered their support over the last few weeks, particularly my brother John who gave up one of his, Katy and Ottie, and the rest of my family who have all put themselves forward and donated in the past. Overwhelmed by the kindness, skill and care of the NHS staff.
I look forward to getting back to business with so much more health and energy. I'm extremely fortunate.
