Our History Matters.

We have a strong reputation built from decades of being the best.

"Sutherland Trading can trace back its origins as one of the UK’s leading musical instrument distributors as far as the 1930s, thanks to a long standing relationship with Hohner, a brand that is globally renowned for the manufacture of harmonicas and accordions.

In the late 1940s, M Hohner Ltd was established in the UK to become the exclusive importer and distributor of Hohner musical instruments. It traded from a number of locations in the London area for almost four decades before relocating to the site that Sutherland now occupies at Bedwas, near Caerphilly, in 1987.

Sutherland Trading, an independent company, was borne out of M Hohner Ltd in 2001 and, whilst continuing to distribute Hohner, now represents a number of key product lines that have become synonymous with quality and value for money within the music industry."
