Baroque bows

In the course of the past 20 years I have made numerous baroque bows.
I don’t make modern bows.

Historically Informed Practice requires special bows. The laws of baroque music are in many ways identical to the laws of rhetoric – the art of speech. A baroque bow in the hand of a musician becomes an orator’s instrument.
An increasing number of modern soloists are discovering the advantages of the baroque bow and use such bows when performing baroque pieces.

  • Dimitry, I just want to tell you again how much I am enjoying the beautiful bow you made for me. It’s so very fine to use and I’m incredibly happy with it.

  • I absolutely love it. It plays practically by itself and has a wonderful full but clear sound. It even works fabulously with my modern violin, which is not the case with all other baroque bows I have used. Thank you!
