There are two basic factors to consider when choosing a bow. The first is how the bow makes your instrument sound and the second is how easy it is to play. Since everyone’s instrument is different and everyone’s playing is unique, it is important to find the best bow for both you and your instrument. The best way to choose a bow is to try a couple. Once I have an idea of what you prefer such as weight, balance and strength (flexibility) I can send a couple for trial or a bow could be commissioned.

I make contemporary bows for violin, viola and cello.
