Violin bow by Richard Wilson, Berwick-upon-Tweed

About Richard Wilson

Richard represents the best of the English bow making tradition, having trained in the Hill style with the maker Garner Wilson. He makes truly exceptional bows from his workshop near Berwick-upon-Tweed, all imbued with a very fine understanding of the aesthetics of excellent French bows. As a former professional violist, Richard has an excellent understanding of what players need from the bow in their case. Richard makes modern, classical and Baroque bows and we are delighted to have a number of modern bows available for sale in our shop.

About the bows

We currently have two violin bows by Richard available, both of which are modern bows.

How do they play?

These are real players’ bows! Richard’s bows seem to posses a remarkable combination of flexibility and power. Usually, a medium-strength stick provides some flexibility, at the expense of some strength: this is not at all the case with these bows. Able to meet technical demands with ease, these bows really do make the job easier!


All three bows are in original mint condition.
