Dearing Instrument Bows

At Dearing Violins Ltd, we are not just international dealers and collectors of stringed instruments and bows; we are the custodians of musical heritage. With an array of exquisite antique violins and bows, we invite you to elevate your performance to concert hall standards.

Craftsmanship Meets Mastery

Our collection is not just an assortment of accessories; it is a curated gallery of masterpieces that represent the pinnacle of quality and craftsmanship. Each bow is hand-selected, not just for its aesthetic appeal but for its provenance, the integrity of its design, and its capacity to draw out the soul of the music.

Our bows come from a lineage of mastery, with each piece bearing the mark of historical significance and performance quality. The meticulous selection process ensures that every bow we offer is capable of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. Whether it’s the supple bounce of a Baroque bow or the firm, assertive articulation of a modern one, our bows are versatile tools in the hands of a discerning musician.

The journey from the artisan’s hands to yours is facilitated by our team of esteemed luthiers and restorers, each a maestro in their own right. With decades of combined experience, they imbue every bow with a new lease of life, setting it up to meet the highest standards of playability. This involves a detailed and intimate process of balancing, weighting, and cambering, ensuring that when you play, the bow responds with intuitive precision.

The Dearing Difference

We believe in bringing out the best in every instrument, from the seasoned Stradivari to the humble student violin. Using only the finest materials and fittings, we guarantee an unparalleled experience with every stroke of the bow.
