Over 100 Years o f History. Stentor has been known to orchestral stringed instrument players and teachers for more than 100 years. According to Greek mythology, Stentor was a herald with the voice and volume of one hundred other men together.
Doughty, a Professor of Music and teacher of the violin, registered the name'Stentor' in 1895 for gut violin strings and rosin. Since the 1960s, more than one million young musicians around the world have begun their musical careers with a Stentor instrument. Many of these same violinists and string players are now to be found in major orchestras and the teaching profession throughout the world.Stentor sells more orchestral stringed instruments than any other company internationally and offers unequalled value. Or igi ns In 1895, Edward Chapman Doughty, a Professor of Music and a minor composer, decided to form his own publishing company. He called it the'Harmonic Publishing Co' and used the name'Stentor' as the brand name for rosin and music strings, particularly violin strings. Following World War II, publishing and importing ceased and in the difficult time of the 1950's the business moved to smaller premises at the Old School, Woodmansterne, UK. The Stentor rosin and gut strings continued to be made and distributed but the emphasis moved to retailing and to the reconditioning of stringed instruments. Stent or Music Co Ltd Stentor Music Co.
Was formed in the early 1960's by Michael Chapman Doughty and other members of his family. It has grown from very small beginnings to become the premier wholesale distributor of acoustic musical instruments in Britain and one of the largest in the World.
The Company has always specialised in stringed instruments of all kinds with an emphasis on high quality educational instruments. Today the company still retains this specialisation. In 1990, Stentor moved to its present freehold premises in Reigate. In December 1995, the year of the Stentor centenary, the Company opened a wholly owned subsidiary factory in Taixing, China. The Taixing factory employs local people and has trained a legion of Atelliers making Stentor violins, cellos and other stringed instruments.
