Coen Engelhard makes wonderful bows in the South of France.
The bows are made out of Acacia wood. They have a nice articulation and a direct, focused sound emission, are stable on the string and pleasurable to hold. They pair perfectly with Renaissance model instruments, but can also lend agility and a more appropriate sound to earlier repertory on a more baroque-style instrument.

The bows are all made of abundant local material, so you could call them sustainable. They are animal-friendly as well– my friend’s horses are happy to contribute their hair. But the proof is in the pudding– you must try them to get the feeling. Please look around on this site, listen to some of the links, and send a message to
