We have the suitable bow for your violin, viola, or cello in our workshop.
All bow qualities are in stock: bows for students and professionals, bows made of Massaranduba or Pernambuco, mounted with nickel silver or sterling silver, up to real master bows.
The bow should be well-adapted to the instrument, so we recommend that you choose your instrument first, and then the appropriate bow to go along with it.
Normally we stock student bows from the bow makers Georg Werner, Paesold, Knoll, Gewa and Atelier Saldo.
In our assortment of master bows we usually have nice specimens in stock by Klaus Grünke, Dirk Löscher, Bernd & Michael Dölling, Atelier Finkel, W.E. Dörfler, and Mathias Thoma (Paesold). A selection of old master bows is also available on the premises.
We can also gladly organize a selection of samples of new bows made by our bow maker colleagues in the KlangGestalten group. If you would like to try out bows by Noel Burke, Emmanuel Carlier, Gerald Knoll, Dirk Löscher, Stéphane Muller, Rüdiger Pfau, Robert Pierce, or Ulf Johannson, you can either visit one of the annual KlangGestalten exhibitions, or you can ask us to bring a selection of their samples from the next exhibition, or have them sent to us.
It’s fascinating to observe the degree to which an appropriate choice of strings and accessories modifies an instrument’s sound and playability - quite regularly we change accessories in our sound adjustment sessions withz great success. (See →sound adjustments)
All these different types of chinrests, tailpieces, strings, endpins, rosins up to wolf note suppressors open up a wide range of possibilities in this area.
Our ample string selection comprises D'Addario, Crown, Jargar, Larsen, Lenzner, Pirastro, Prim, Savarez, Thomastik, Warchal and Westminster strings, from standard Dominant to exotic RONDO, TI or Amo and Vivo strings
Thanks to our international contacts, we keep ourselves up-to-date on the latest developments. We love to try out new, innovative products, and to get them in stock for our customers.
Our lineup of accessories is completed with a good shop selection of stable carrying cases for violin, viola and cello of the brands GEWA, BAM, WINTER, RIBONI, PEDI, and BERGNER.
Fiedler backpack system for cello cases
This backpack system is a real ergonomic and comfortable backpack system for cello cases. We can order it to fit to your cello cases (most fibre-glass cello cases can be equipped) and it can be adjusted to your body size.
We really recommend it.
