New Work

Since 1762, the name Hill has represented a combination of craftsmanship and the highest standards of expertise that the firm continues to offer, with a long and distinguished history of instrument and bow making.

In the tradition of Hill we have assembled a team of the finest craftsmen and most talented luthiers of the day to produce instruments, bows, and accessories to exacting standards for contemporary concert artists.



Under the direction of Robert Brewer Young and Stefan-Peter Greiner, violins modeled after Stradivari - including the Messiah of 1716 - notable Bergonzis, and the work of Guarneri del Gesu are being made as part of the Hill heritage.


Derek Wilson, who joined Hill in 1978, oversees the making of bows that offer the excellence of an enduring English tradition.




Using the resources provided by the Hill archive, access to rare instruments and centuries of experience allows W. E. Hill & Sons to provide the music world with the finest tools for performance.
