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 employed a number of the top French bow makers of the period, including Jean-Joseph Martin.

About the cello bow

This bow was made in Mirecourt circa 1920.

The round stick measures 700 mm in length and the mounts are of silver and ebony.

The bow weighs 86 grams.

How does it play?

Whilst chunky, this bow is lithe and responsive. It feels deft in the hand and easy to change musical direction. My favourite thing about it is how well it grips the string, even with only a little rosin on it.


This bow is in very good condition
