Salchow & Sons is a traditional, full-service workshop because only a craftsman's insight can provide the best care and maintenance for your bows. Our shop is the largest of its kind, dedicated solely to the hand-made tradition of French bowmaking since 1960.
Because the hair itself is such an important component, we spend considerable time seeking hair providers and testing their product to ensure only the highest quality and freshest hair comes into the shop.
Violin, Viola, Cello - $90
Bass - $100

We choose only the finest quality materials in all of the work we do and strive to restore your bow to as close to its original state as possible. We do a full range of work, from replacing windings and grips, to more complex work such as optimizing camber, crafting new tips, and repairing broken sticks.
We are also often asked to craft replacement frogs for bows with tortoiseshell or ivory frogs and historically important bows that are used by players. It is because we see and handle so many of the world’s finest bows and have a legacy of bench experience that we are uniquely qualified to perform these restorations.
