For any enthusiast or connoisseur of bows, the name of FX Tourte evokes splendour and beauty, an almost unequalled perfection. The Company Fx Tourte SA is specialized in the acquisition and sale of old bows, and especially bows of the masters: François Xavier and Nicolas Léonard Tourte, Dominique and François Peccatte, Pierre Simon, Joseph Henry, Nicolas Maire, Etienne Pajeot, F.N. Voirin, and Eugène Sartory, among others.
Every single bow is carefully examined and selected according to very strict criteria, including its state of preservation, quality and density of wood, firmness of the stick, weight and length. For any bow of higher quality, we provide a certificate of authenticity issued by one of the internationally recognized experts in French archetery in Europe (Paris, Brussels) or in the United States. After restoration - if necessary - and certification, the bows are ready for sale.
