Pierre has won prizes for cello, viola and violin bows, including at the VSA in 2008 and and 2012 and the Vatelot competition in 2011. This stick is strong and nimble, helping the instrument to respond easily.

Monique Poullot

Several examples. For the past decade we have been the exclusive representatives of Monique Poullot’s bows in the United States. Her training can be traced back to the bow making school in Mirecourt run by Bernard Ouchard, as her first teacher was a graduate of the program. Well steeped in the traditional methods of the great French school, she has continued perfecting her craft with such masters as the renowned Stephane Tomachot. These bows are a great value for the price. Her wood selection is first rate, consistently rich in tonal properties and flexible across the strings. Her bows are excellent for any player looking for a good, modern French bow at an affordable price.
