Fiddle bow shopping in Paris

Messagepar lswanson » jeu. 19 avr. 2012, 17:52

I'm a dobro player who recently took up fiddle. I'll be in Paris the first week of May, and while there I plan to cruise Rue de Rome and the violin shops and maybe buy myself a new bow. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what shops a bluegrasser looking for a 3-400 Euro bow (as opposed to a classical player looking to spend 5000) should check out? Thanks, great to see there's bluegrass happening in France!

Hi Iswanson, and welcome here!
In my mind, the prettiest you could find in Paris, with a "bluegrass twist", is François & Rosine Charle's Shop.
17 Galerie Vero-Dodat 75001 PARIS

Yes, it's a real good spot. It's open on the afternoon from tuesday to saturday.

Have a nice trip to Paris. Unfortunately, I'm not in town cause it's the french vacations but nest time, may be.

Take care,

Thank you for your suggestions, the shop looks perfect!

Pierre, great to hear from another dobro player - perhaps I'll see you in Nashville at ResoSummit sometime!
