Handmade Bows

Both my modern and pre-modern bows are used by prominent professionals. I have a particular concept of playing feel and articulation to which I normally adjust all of my own bows, but through my extensive experience with players and the adjustment of their bows, I can customize a bow to satisfy an individual player’s needs and desires.

I always have a selection of new and antique bows made by other makers in all price ranges, in fully restored and adjusted condition. I guarantee authenticity and absence of hidden flaws, and I offer a full price trade-in policy.

Please call for my current stock of my own and other bows
