Hi Ralph, I got the bow and I´m already playing with it. The sound is very clear and stable, great to play fast notes but i’m still discovering more things. Thank you so much! Last tour I played also a quartet (Haydn) with Barry Sargent and guess he said why don’t you use one of my bows (transitional) and it was from you! I did like it but I would prefer to have one a bit heavier in the middle, well his bow is a violin bow so no wonder. Anyway i will be in touch.
The bow is very nice with my new romantic violin, and I´m so happy with this bow. It sounds clear and very “cantabile”, very comfortable to play. It’s ideal for Mendelssohn and Schubert. And, I’m grateful that I got to know you. Thanks!!
The bow arrived today in safe condition, very earlier than ups scheduled date. At once, I tried it to play Abel, Bach and Telemann in finest sounds. I’m satisfied with excellent balance and whippiness for the weight of the bow and rich full tone. I do not have any thinking to return it. It will surely be one of my best favorite friends of music.
I had the good fortune this weekend to be playing with Elin Gabrielssohn who had two bows of yours on trial. She has, as you will probably know by now, decided to buy one of them: I should like to buy the other.
I had, of course, seen a lot of your work – Enrico Onofri, Claudia Combs, Stanley Ritchie and others all use your bows…, but as I have always been happy with my Italian Ghirardelli, I never really considered looking for anything else.
I played for 20 minutes with the bow that Elin ‘didn’t’ want and I was taken.
Yes! Day before yesterday I received your wonderful bow.
Thank you very very much!! It’s so beautiful and powerful. I really love it!! Next month, I will play with the bow at the concert at once. You make me so happy!!
Thanks with all my heart.
I receved the bow on 10 May in Milano. I was very curious. The bow is very-very nice. Perceptibly you used the best quality materials. Thank you. The sound is fantastic, big and warm. The wood is flexible and strong.Perfect aesthetics. I used it for two concerts and it was really easy and natural. So, I’m very happy. I hope to meet you personally in the future.
