Stentor instruments are produced in a carefully supervised environment. Design, specification and production control are provided by the specialist expertise of Stentor Music Co. Ltd. UK, whose history in Britain exceeds 100 years. 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.
There has been an increasing demand for smaller violas - the Stentor Student I and II ranges now cover all sizes down to 12. These instruments have increased rib depth and correct dimensions of bass bar and thicknessing to produce a
good 'viola' sound.
