Violins and bows handcrafted and restored in the heart of London


Antoni Ruschil and Florian Bailly are violin and bow makers originating from London and Paris. Having studied together at Newark School of Violin Making they then apprenticed across Europe in their own fields at prestigious workshops in Italy, France, Germany, Cyprus, Ireland and the UK.

Ruschil & Bailly have created a violin shop in central London to provide a bespoke service for musicians. Included in the collection for The Royal Academy of Music, they also provide instruments and services for The Royal College of Music and Guildhall, as well as orchestras, soloists, teachers and students of all kinds across Europe. They always have a selection of fine violins, violas, cellos and bows for sale.

Violins by Antoni Ruschil Antoni Ruschil's violins, violas and cellos are highly sought after. Featuring in the collection of The Royal Academy of Music and played by professionals across Europe in academies and orchestras, his instruments are highly acclaimed, owing to their sonority, beauty and playability.

Bows by Florian Bailly Following the method of the French bow making tradition, Florian Bailly has developed his own successful model of bow. The result of close exchange with musicians, his bows are acclaimed for their easy response, evenness of tone and excellent balance.

His bows are played by professionals and students of Chetham's School of Music, The Royal College of Music, as well as other academies across Europe.

Our Philosophy Our philosophy is to provide a unique experience for every one of our customers. Ruschil & Bailly is a fresh, new kind of violin shop made for the musician. Giving each individual player our full attention, we listen to and go through every nuance to get the very best out of the instrument and achieve the sound that the player desires. Enjoying our light and bright workshop in central London, we talk through how we can improve the sound, look and life of the instrument and bow.

"Violin Bridge"

"Had a violin bridge replaced by Antoni (Ruschil) at short notice, on a bank holiday weekend (with the added complication of a bridge-mounted pickup). Not only did this get me out of a very difficult situation, the replacement is better than the original and I was given a free sound adjustment session which has markedly improved the response of the instrument to boot. Very considerate of my needs and preferences, great people to work with; highly recommended all round."
