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 violin bows are fitted with silver mounts.
Suitable performance for the most advanced amateur, or professional violinist. Each bow includes a full guarantee on the quality of buttons, screws and eyelets, pearlslides and eyes. Each weighs approximately 60-61 grams, typically. Contact us to find the perfect bow for you and our staff string players will choose from our hand-selected inventory.
