A full service bow shop
Though I specialize in the creation of custom-crafted bows, the shop does offer a wide selection of violin, viola, cello and bass bows by various makers at a variety of price points. My inventory is constantly changing, though bows by Hill and Sons, Sartory, Ouchard, as well as contemporary makers are usually in the shop. I make sure all of these consignment bows are in fine shape and play well before I accept them in my inventory. The shop also offers fine rosins and bow cases for purchase.
We take great care to source our hair. When we rehair your bow, we will carefully examine the hair and cull any hair that does not meet our standards. The shop has a variety of bow hair to choose from for different uses; please feel free to consult with us about the differences.
Service is important to us. When you choose our shop for your rehair we will examine your bow, note any areas of concern, and adjustments can be made per your consultation. The bow will be returned to you cleaned and polished.
Rehairs are by appointment only and we are usually booked days in advance.
