Bows

Thousands of years before the advent of the bow, stringed instruments were plucked. Bows were developed in Central Asia in the 10th century and evolved until Fracois Tourte developed the modern standardized Western bow in France in the 19th century.

French master bow makers crafted bows with the perfect combination of design, weight, flexibility, strength and beauty, using imported Brazilian pernambuco wood. Modern master bow makers must source the perfect wood and some are using synthetic materials like carbon fiber.

Benning Violins offers an extensive collection of fine violin, viola and cello bows by the great French masters including Tourte, Tubbs, Sartory, Ouchard, Bazin, Fetique and more. We also stock fine bows from modern bow makers like Mohr, Wehling and Kanestrom.
