Finely crafted bows for violin, viola, cello and bass.
Bows may be tried on an approval basis. Let me know what sort of a bow you are playing now, and/or the type bow that you are looking for, and I will send a few bows that I think will fill your needs. You may try the bows for up to a week.
A deposit of $250.00 is required before any bows will be sent. This deposit will be applied toward the purchase price of a bow, or will be refunded if you choose not to buy one. Alternately, you may provide me with a credit card account number, VISA, MasterCard or Discover, which will be used to "authorize" the purchase price of one bow. ("Authorizing" a specific dollar amount to a credit card account places a hold on this amount against the card holder's available credit line. There is no actual charge made to the account. The hold disappears after a period of eight days.)
Please give me a call or let me know by mail if you choose the credit card option. (DO NOT send your credit card number via E-mail: This is not a secure site.)
I will pay the costs of shipping the bows to you, as well as return shipping charges if you purchase a bow. If you do not purchase a bow, return shipping costs will be your responsibility. This generally runs about $30.00 to $50.00 for postage and insurance.
Due to the ever increasing complexity and restrictions of customs regualtions, I am not currently shipping bows overseas.
