The name ‘Stentor’ has been known to orchestral string players and teachers for over a century. Edward C. Doughty, a professor of music and teacher of the violin, registered the name in 1895 for his company that manufactured and sold gut violin strings and rosin.
Now the company is thriving. Since 1960, one million young musicians have begun their careers with a Stentor instruments. They are now heralded as the premier wholesale distributor of acoustic musical instruments in Britain. In 1995 they opened their first wholly-owned subsidiary factory in Taixing where they employ local skilled workers to make violins, cellos and other stringed instruments. The finished products are shipped to thirty countries and receive excellent reviews from teachers worldwide, naming them the best ‘budget’ student instruments on the market.
