Visits to try our clarinets
We welcome visitors to try our clarinets, which are usually available for sale from stock. It is best to make an appointment so that we can discuss your requirements and then have instruments ready to play on your arrival. We are very experienced in helping players choose between the two models, International and Elite, and also in choosing a particular clarinet from the stock that we have available. We can also advise on the choice of mouthpiece, which is often the more difficult decision to make. When customers decide to buy a clarinet, we are always happy for them to take away a selection of mouthpieces on approval, if this helps.
Because our clarinets are available only directly through us, it is sometimes necessary for people to travel long distances to visit us. Fortunately, people seem to be very happy to travel to try our instruments, sometimes from distant parts of the world.
We prefer to deal with mouthpieces by post, mainly because players often find it helpful to try a new mouthpiece in a familiar environment. If stocks permit, we send one on approval, following a discussion about the most suitable one to try. Priority will always be given to players of our own Peter Eaton clarinets.
By road from M25, Junction 10. From the roundabout take the exit marked A3 South to Guildford. After 300 metres and before joining the A3, take the left turn, sign-posted to Effingham. This is Old Lane, a wooded country lane. Follow this for just over 2 miles to a T-junction. Go right and immediately left and over the railway bridge. This is now Effingham Common Road, which you take for about a mile to a double mini-roundabout. Go right at the first roundabout, in front of a white wooden building; this is Orestan Lane. Woodside is 300 metres on the left, a tall house after passing a raised field and a bungalow. Please note that if you use satellite navigation, you might enter Orestan Lane from the opposite end. If this happens, the simplest thing is to drive almost to the end of Orestan Lane, turn around in The Plough pub car park and then follow the above directions.
By rail. To Effingham Junction from London Waterloo. There are two services per hour to Guildford via Surbiton and Cobham (40 minutes). There are also services via Epsom, which take a little longer.We pick up customers from the station which is just three minutes away.
