|Item Description & Specifications |
As we know, pernambuco is an endanger specie. Many efforts have been done to find a substitute wood of pernambuco. IPE is regarded as one of the best candidates, which has similar properties to make an excellent bow. IPE, a dense tree from Brazil. A very good source of violin bows. Air dry density: 0.9-1.16. In recent years, some bows made of IPE even won gold metals in international string instrument making competitions. Good IPE bows certainly outperform the moderate level pernambuco bows. We have imported tons of IPE lumbers from Brazil three years ago. Now, they are ready for bow making. They are super quality bow blanks with high figures of stiffness and resilience.

"My bow arrived safely. Thanks you. I would really like to commend your staff for the excellent craftsmanship that has gone into this bow. Because I am a violin-maker my standards are extremely high, and I have to say this bow has been made without any flaws or problems. It is perfect. Please pass on this message to your bow-maker"-----------------Philip
"I wanted to tell you that I have found your instruments and bows to be amazing quality for the price. I bought a viola from your company last year through ebay, and when I took it to have the bridge fitted, the Luthier said that the viola was worth more than 5 times what I paid for it. Your bows are beautiful and well made, too, and would cost probably 5 - 10 times more if bought from a local music shop. Thank you so much!" -------------------------------------------------Anna
"I Got my bow today, I love it!!! It's carbon fiber bow I've ever played and I played many brands in the past. Please tell the maker that he is one hell of a bow maker!"---------------------------------------------Jonathan
"I want to tell you that this exquisite copy is one of your "Hallmark" pieces--a real "Grand AMATI" in every way. In a small but famous shop in Washington, D.C., about 37 years ago, I looked at 3 Nicolo Amati violins in this pattern and I can tell you that your maker has captured the pure essence of the Amati House of Violinmaking at its best!
