Bespoke Instrument & Bow Making
In addition to dealing in our range of fine antiques, the skilled craftsmen of The Violineri offer a bespoke instrument & bow making service. Clients are invited to commission the crafting of a fine violin, viola or cello, made to order in our Melbourne workshop, and fine modern & period instrument bows made by our archetier Paul B. Shields.
Clients are consulted regarding their preferences on style, varnish and materials to ensure we make exactly the instrument which the discerning musician has in mind.
The Violineri offers clients the opportunity to commission a bow made to their specifications by archetier Paul B. Shields. Bows are traditionally made with fine pernambuco wood, shaped and balanced by hand, with a choice of mother-of-pearl and silver or gold fittings.
Drawing upon his archive of making notes and details, Paul also offers baroque and classical bows, with screw or clip-in frogs.
