The Strad is a UK-based monthly classical music magazine about string instruments, including cellists, violinists, and violists for amateur and professional musicians. Founded in 1889, the magazine provides information, photographs and reviews of instruments, related feature articles and news, and information about musical concerts.[1][2] The magazine offers practical advice on technique, profiles of leading performers, master classes by some of the great teachers in the world and the craft of instrument making such as luthiers.[citation needed] It also includes articles about orchestras and music schools.[citation needed]

The first issue was released in June 1890.[3] It is now[when?] owned by Newsquest and edited by Chloe Cutts.[1][4]
