J.T.L fine bows for violin are inspired by some of the most highly-respected archetiers from the French tradition. This JTLBV1 bow is crafted in the style of Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume. Multi Award-Winning Luthier and bow dealer, Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume was born into a family of luthiers in 1798 in Mirecourt, France: the later home of the Thibouville-Lamy company. In the 1820s Vuillaume started to work with a well-regarded workshop in Paris and just a few years later was making celebrated imitations of old master’s instruments, winning a silver medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1827. Over the following three decades, Vuillaume’s own workshop at 46 Rue Croix de Petits-Champs became extremely influential in Europe, thanks in no small part to his purchase of 144 instruments made by the Italian Masters, 25 of which were Stradivari instruments, and one of which was the now legendary ‘Messiah Stradivarius’. He meticulously studied all these instruments and created remarkable copies of them, which are now celebrated classics in their own right. Throughout the 19th century, Vuillaume worked with countless bowmakers too, creating many famous and influential pieces stamped ‘Vuillaume à Paris’.

Unless stated otherwise all our bows are supplied with a starter coat of premium quality William Salchow rosin. Good, fresh rosin is essential to obtain the best performance from any bow.
