Alexander Accessories Ltd

Leading brand of chinrests and tailpieces

We have the widest range of hand crafted chinrest designs available on the market, in many different styles and heights. This ensures that the player's personal choice and comfort can be realised.

Our hand crafted tailpieces are finished in the traditional styles to the individual lengths specified by each customer, to best suit their instrument.

We try to provide a very personal service to our customers which is based on our expertise, experience and a wish to supply them with a chinrest which they will be very comfortable with and happy to use for many years to come.

Viola Chinrests

Every viola chinrest is made specifically to fit each individual customer’s instrument. We therefore request a drawing to be sent to us,
showing the outline of the viola, where the chinrest fits, with the centre line of the bottom button clearly marked. We also need to know the width of the viola, so that the correct length of barrels can be fitted. There is no extra charge for this service.


Alexander Accessories supply hand crafted French and English (Hill) style tailpieces for the violin and viola – in lengths to suit your instrument These can be made in boxwood, ebony, rosewood or African blackwood and can be fitted with frets made in ebony, unstained boxwood or bone (used instead of ivory).
