My bows are made from the finest available materials; they really are a work of art. The pernambuco I use is always exquisite character, and never stained to develop the color. I used a number of models over the years, including Tourte, Persoit, Peccatte, Eury, Simon. I always work entirely with my own original pattern, developed from the spirit of the early and middle 19th Century French bow makers, Inspired by the early French aesthetic. The bows have the same look and feel as the bows of that period.
