Violin / Viola / Cello / Double bass / Violin student /
Treble /   Tenor viol /   Bass viol/   Violone /   Viol student /

My bows are based upon historical examples I have seen in museum collections or that belong to musicians I know, and the models that you will find in the following pages are those whose characteristics I have been inspired to reproduce most frequently. In addition, I can offer copies of other examples such as the Corelli or Cramer models, or indeed make a copy of any other bow you happen to like. We can, if you wish, discuss your exact needs as a player and construct a bow that is best suited to you and to your instrument. For the first three instruments in each family you will find a student model..
