Il Monrealese


This model is my early baroque “favorite”, born of the desire to recreate the bow from a painting in a fun and convincing way.


“Il Monrealese” – actually Pietro Novelli (1603-1647) – painted this depiction of the musical competition between Apollo and Marsyas.

The proportions of this bow have been determined directly from the bow in the painting. The choice of material (blackened larch or yew wood for the stick, mammoth bone for the caps and rosewood for the frog) is based on real-life precedents, although the painting, of course, gives no information about the materials.


I also make a version without the dark varnishing, for which I only use domestic materials and omit the bone and tropical wood.


In the last several years, this model has proven highly successful and is used by professional musicians in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, among others.

    From some models I have unsaleable samples that I can send for viewing. They then serve as a basis for discussion on the way to your optimal bow, which I will be happy to make for you personally.

    Customer satisfaction is very important to me in every order.


    A down payment of approx. 1/3 of the purchase price enables the order to be processed quickly. The balance will be paid after satisfaction.


    If, contrary to expectations, the bow does not please, the deposit can be refunded except for a handling fee of 100,- Euro. The circumstances of the order and deposit are subject to personal agreement.


    I look forward to our exchange,
