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!!
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.
Thank you for the wonderful bow!
With the bow you made, I can pronounce the sound very clearly and I can make sound exactly same as I intend to make, I love the bow very much.
Also I don’t need much power to make resonant sound, I can do it with little power, that’s very nice for me too. I’ll play with it with great care and with great happiness. Thank you again for this supreme bow.
I received the new bow on this wednesday.
It is Amazing!!!
I can play more warmer,more nature and richer for every note.
And, most surprised thing for me was,,,
I can play everything wherever of the bow!!!!!
It is miracle isn’t it !!???!!
It is really amazing.
I cannot possibly put my thanks into words.
I am very very happy.
I just want to let you know that I’m very pleased with the bows you’ve sent and that the students are benefiting from their use. Their public debut will take place in February in performances of music of Mozart and Haydn. Thanks as ever for your excellent craftsmanship and service.
