Violin Bow From the JTL workshop, Mirecourt

About J.T.L. bows

The workshop of Jérôme Thibouville Lamy was based in Mirecourt and made a wide range of stringed instruments and bows. They were open for more than a century, closing their doors for the last time in 1969. The workshop was both large and prolific and examples of their work can be seen all around the world.

About the bow

The bow is modelled after Jean Baptiste Vuillaume, who made a number of bows on which the ribbon of hair is curved. Vuillaume was a great innovator: this is one of many creative ideas he tried out.

The bow weighs 60 grams and the mounts are of silver and ebony. The stick measures 732 mm in length.

How does it play?

This violin bow is very smooth to play and is very good at dampening down an excessively bright sounding instrument.


This bow is in excellent condition.
