BOWS, BOWS, BOWS…………
A bow is a delicate and graceful element, one of the natural ingredients you combine to influence the quality of your performance with a string instrument; while a carbon fiber bow is nearly indestructible, musicians having been making music with wooden bows for centuries. This string instrument shop specializes in fine wood bows! If you are looking for the tone and warmth that a great wooden bow can add to your performance, call for an appointment to sample the bows available here.
Recently Mike visited the workshop of a German bowmaker (bogenbau) in operation for over 300 years, now with the seventh generation working daily. Making bows from select aged wood stock, meeting these craftsmen was a true honor!
