Giving each individual player our full attention, we listen to and go through every nuance to get the very best out of the instrument and achieve the sound that the player desires. Enjoying our light and bright workshop in central London, we talk through how we can improve the sound, look and life of the instrument and bow.

Florian Bailly – Bow Maker

Parisian born, Florian Bailly crossed the channel to study at Newark School of Violin Making. On graduating he started his bow making career as the apprentice of master bow maker Noel Burke, Ireland. Using the same techniques as his master, Florian has developed his own style and successful model. He is inspired most of all by the finest of the old Parisian masters and contemporary bow makers.
