Marin Marais is perhaps the best-known player of and composer for the viola da gamba in France. Not only did he inspire the addition of a seventh string to the instrument, but he also influenced the design of the gamba bow through his music.


With these ideas in mind, I have created this model based on various historical originals. Under tension, the stick only bends outwards, allowing for well pronounced articulation.


The distance between stick and hair at the frog can be customized to fit your needs; this consideration becomes more important the smaller your hand is, as the bow could otherwise be difficult to handle.

    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,
