StringWorks is pleased to offer Horst John and D. Silveira Pernambuco viola bows for our more discerning customers, aiming for world-class materials and performance. We hand-select each and every bow from the workshop, looking over hundreds of bows to find the best for our customers.
Rich, velvety tone with quick response and perfect balance - makes your most romantic piece or your quickest passages sound their best. Our violist will match the perfect bow to your StringWorks instrument, or setup a trial yourself!
The D. Silveira name is recently added to the Horst John workshop, but the bows are made by the same craftsmen.
Each starts with the selection of the indicated wood, straight-grained, and naturally aged and dried. Available in gold and decorative silver mounts with fancy pearl inlay by special order, these Horst John and D. Silveira viola bows are fitted with silver mounts, typically with 3-part silver buttons but also in solid silver button.
Suitable performance for the most advanced amateur, or professional violist. Each bow includes a full guarantee on the quality of buttons, screws and eyelets, pearlslides and eyes. Each weighs approximately 69-71 grams, typically. Contact us to find the perfect bow for you and our staff string players will choose from our hand-selected inventory.
