elcome to the home of Oakwood Instruments.
We're based in Leeds, West Yorkshire - a place called Oakwood, hence the name. We have been making hand-crafted instruments for thirty years. As a result of our knowledge and experience, we have built a solid reputation, particularly in the folk world. On these pages you'll see what makes us special.
e use high-quality materials and fine craftsmanship to produce instruments that look good, sound great and play well. Pick up an Oakwood and feel the difference of a hand-made instrument. Play one, and understand why so many musicians are choosing Oakwood. Talk to us, and we can make you an instrument that you'll treasure for life.
Ordering - we don't have a shopping cart system. Please phone (afternoons are best) or email with any orders or enquiries.
Although our approach is traditional, we are continuously researching radical designs and exploring new construction techniques. This means that we can offer you the choice of a wide range of traditional instruments, less common instruments and custom designs.
All over now - hope to see you in 2014 at Chippenham or Sidmouth,Whitby or Towersey.

We had our first price rise since 2007, in 2010. We have kept instrument prices about the same in 2013, but we've had to make some adjustments to accessories such as strings, pickups, cases etc to reflect the increasing costs to us. See our price list.
