    Bow Making

    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.
