The Howarth name is first linked with wind instrument making in 1874, when George Howarth was apprenticed to the flute maker Alexander Liddle in London. George was the father of T W (Tom) Howarth, whose name became the firm's original name 'T W Howarth & Co Ltd' when it was established in 1948. In 2008, the firm changed its name to 'Howarth of London Ltd' to reflect general usage.
Howarth of London are now internationally known as makers of the finest oboes, oboes d'amore and English horns. Alongside their role as makers, they are one of the world's leading suppliers of oboes, bassoons, clarinets and saxophones. The London showrooms are a bustling meeting point for players and offer a comprehensive range of accessories and woodwind sheet music.
The staff are all players and can help you however long you have been playing - or even if you haven't started yet! Experienced technicians in the workshops on the premises can undertake repairs and custom modifications to customers' instruments.
