A customer came in today ask me to rehair this bow for her because other shops refuse to do it. After I cut the hair I realized whoever rehair It last superglued the shell slide and it is completely stuck. Upon removing it, the shell cracked and came off. After rehairing it and built a new slide, I could not find a piece of shell to dress it up so decided that this probably match better with this carbon fiber bow.... ... See MoreSee Less

FAQ

Why did you invent a tailpiece with carbon fiber?

I am a strong believer that our instruments still have room to improve in sound and vibration and naturally produce a bigger and more vibrant sound. The tailpiece is a sensitive area of our instrument, its function is not only hold strings but to transmit the vibration and feed it back to the bridge. Using carbon fiber makes sense  because its weight to density ratio is able to transmit vibrations back to the bridge much more than wood,  plastic or metal. I made one for my 1700 Mateo Goffriller, instantly it woke up the old cello and gave it extra vibration, more focus, deeper bass, faster response, clearer tone and much more sound.

How much does it cost?

The violin version is $350 and comes with 1 titanium fine tuner on the E. French or Hill style available.
The viola version is $450.
The cello version is $800 for no fine tuners, $1200 with titanium fine tuners.
The bass version is $1000.
