Just wanted to thank you for making that bow I recently bought! I really don’t think I would have had as much fun or played as well on my Mozart concerto a couple of weeks ago without it! It’s the first transitional bow I’ve ever had that really really feels comfortable.
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.
The new bow is really fantastic, I’m very happy! Thank you a lot for your work! Ciao.
As early music ideas are becoming more mainstream, I am using your bow more often in the orchestra with my modern violin. In particular, last week for Beethoven #3 and this week for Beethoven #5! As conductors are taking Beethoven’s audacious tempo markings more literally, your bow allows me to play the fleet tempi with ease. Also terrific for later Baroque work, Mozart Opera, and Oratorios. It has literally been a career saver.
Whenever I can, I encourage colleagues to try my bow, to show them how they can maximize their efforts while protecting their arm.
Dear Ralph, your bow has arrived safe! Thanks a lot, it’s beautiful, exactly as I wanted … You have read my thoughts! Today I spent the afternoon to try and seems made for my Pietro Guarneri … thanks really!
I played a concert last week with the bow, and I am very happy. The sound is beautiful and it’s very easy to play. Thanks a lot.
I am now in Spain until Wednesday, I will send the other bow to your customer in Italy on Thursday or Friday…
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.
Of course!!!! I am enjoying your bow everyday! Few days ago I played with Mr. Onofri at the Concert in Tokyo!!! (Toshihiko was the member of the orchestra!) Enrico and I played with your Bows!!!!! I think ….my baroque bow made in ironwood. Please see the pictures of my baroque bow and classical bow! Thank you again for my great creator!
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.
