"Congratulations to The String House for filling the void that used to exist in finding quality hand-made violas in small sizes. Now one can progress to a larger size all the way to 16 1/2" as one grows, knowing that the quality of instrument will be maintained and the financial trade-in policy be in place. I greatly admire the tasteful craftsmanship in these violas; they provide an ideal voice for the development of each student's individual tone."

Professor of Music Emeritus

Bows  

To the player the choice of bow is critical to the overall sound of his instrument, and will invariably enhance one's ability to perform. A bow may be selected for any number of reasons, but in the end, the choice is always personal in nature.

From student to virtuoso, The String House has always felt it imperative to provide a wide range of select bows to meet the players needs. Our collection consists of today's fine contemporary makers as well as the English and French masters of the "Old School". The following is a partial list of bows available at The String House:

CODA BOW - www.codabow.com CodaBow is the premier family of carbon fiber performance bows for violin, viola, cello and bass. The String House carries the complete line of bows that enhance all levels of performance from student to professional. Please call us for pricing.

ARCOS BRASIL - www.arcosbrasil.com Committed to quality, Arcos Brasil has been able to produce student bows of remarkable excellence and make their bows as close to perfection as possible. Contact us for pricing and availability.

JON PAUL BOWS - www.jonpaulbows.com JonPaul Bows strongly support conservation efforts to protect dwindling rain forests and wood supplies. Since their start in 1997, JonPaul Bows has pioneered the use of alternative materials to make great-playing carbon fiber composite bows. They also support the production of wood bows made from existing wood stocks and the responsible harvesting of renewable woods.
