Abe Liebhaber Bows


I made my first bow with Lynn Hannings at the University of New Hampshire bowmaking program founded by William Salchow and have continued my studies George Rubino, Matt Cooker and Steve Beckley, and am a member of the Violin Society of America. I have learned the essential elements of hand work in the French and contemporary traditions from them- I make the bow from pernambuco log through the first application of hair. More recently I have taken part in Summer Workshop in bowmaking at Oberlin (Violin Society of America) where I contribute to the group reproduction of interesting bows for well-known customers. Oberlin allows me to get to know, learn from, and work with many master bowmakers from the US, Canada, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium, Japan, Denmark, and England.
