bio

H. F. Grabenstein studied bowmaking with Wm. Salchow at the University of New Hampshire in 1982 and 1983. He was Bowmaker at the Tourin Musica from 1983 to 1990. Grabenstein continues to build a full range of historical bows for the viol and violin families of string instruments. Using snakewood, pernambuco, ebony and other hardwoods he creates beautifully detailed bows that play expressively and are secure on the string. Clients include: members of Fretwork, The Kings Noyse, the Van Swieten Quartet, the Baltimore Consort, Ensemble Galilei, Chatham Baroque, The Orchestra of the 18th Century, The Boston Symphony, and The Cleveland Orchestra.
