Stentor Music tote bag

Stentor violins, violas, cellos and double basses are carved from solid tonewoods, from the initial instrument shape to the finer details. Instruments are individually thicknessed for quality of sound. We carefully control the specification and measurements of Stentor instruments at our own factory workshops to produce instruments that have the essential characteristics of good tone and consistent quality control. On all Stentor instruments, the bridge and soundpost are carefully fitted to ensure the best playability.

 Stentor Music tote bags

We exhibit at a number of trade shows both in the UK and internationally meeting with Orchestral stringed instrument teachers and music professionals. A promotional bag is useful item at a show and we chose the 5 Oz natural cotton as it is the perfect size to carry sheet music yet its good quality also makes it a great re-useable shopping bag.  The quality of the bag and the screen printing was very good as was the service we received from BIDBI.
