"Music is about devotion, and knowing when to be free." -Leonidas Kavakos



Endeavour, NZ's own brand!

New Zealand’s musicians agree; “Endeavour Snakewood bows are excellent quality.

Endeavour violin bows are meticulously hand-crafted in China to strict design and quality specifications of The String Workshop. They stand out from other brands of ‘rubbery-feeling’ and ‘dull sounding’ bows are swamping today’s market.
Endeavour bows produce an alive, and clear resonance which far exceeds the tone of other bows in this price range. Made from hand selected seasoned snakewood, they are skilfully hand crafted, carefully varnished, and then undergo thorough quality control checks before being sent to New Zealand. Once they arrive in New Zealand, they are again inspected and evaluated for quality by professional luthier Phil Whitehead.  Quality assurance is guaranteed.

This bow consistes of a hand-selected snakewood stick, gold-plated nickel-silver fully mounted snakewood frog with parisian eyes & button. Natural palamino stallion hair, unbleached.
