An exquisite silver mounted violin bow by Victor Bernard, was made on the inspiration of a late 19th century F. Lupot model design. The bow is 60.8 grams, generating a sound that is warmly and smoothly nuanced with a sustained powerful tone, that is both wide, strong, and stable, along with an incisively quick and subtle quality, yet with powerful resilience in the stick. It fulfills everything one wants in a bow, long legato sustain to riccochet staccatissimo, superior performance in all aspects for the professional or discerning musician alike.
Victor BERNARD was born in 1985 near Paris, France.
Passionate about bow making, Victor graduated from the Newark School of Violin Making. Afterwards he worked in Brussels under Pierre Guillaume’s expertise in bow making and restoration where he was able to develop his taste for antique bows.
Victor gathered further work experience with renowned bowmakers in Europe.
In 2014, he joined the Atelier Flagey in Brussels and worked alongside violinmaker Joanne Van Bosterhaut.
Victor is a founding member of Ekho, an association created for the promotion of contemporary violin and bow making through exhibitions.
He regularly takes part in international bow making exhibitions, Belgium, France, Germany, England, Ireland, United States, Japan, etc.
