Bow Type: Violin
Maker: John Greenwood
Description: John Greenwood makes master quality handmade bows for string instruments. Based in San Francisco, John's bows are played by more than 25 members of the San Francisco Symphony, Opera, and Ballet, plus numerous musicians in the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke's, Atlanta Symphony, New York City Ballet, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. In addition, a good number of concert soloists, concertmasters, and principal players play with Greenwood bows -- many exclusively.
Each Greenwood bow is a unique piece, meticulously crafted one at a time. John is fortunate to have assembled a substantial supply of premium quality pernambuco wood for fashioning his sticks. Even more than with violin making, exceptional wood choice is crucial to making a concert quality bow. The select materials found in a Greenwood bow consistently rival that used by the great French masters.
