We have had the pleasure of handling some of the finest bows in the world. A great bow can do so much for a player. A bow can create a totally different personality for an instrument and allow an artist to be more expressive. Adding another bow can also allow the player to be more versatile as a performer. Why should a performer use the same bow for Shostakovich as they do for Bach?
Below is a small sample of some the bows recently sold by our firm. They are representative of some of the finest known examples by these extroidinary makers. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
