Traveling with a bow and instrument has becoming increasingly difficult and even dangerous for those containing CITES listed or banned materials. Cut through the paperwork and worry with a bow specifically designed to allow you to travel with ease across international borders.
Ivory, Tortoiseshell, and Whalebone are just a few of the commonly used bow making materials that are tightly regulated by international law. Our bows use materials such as bison horn, silver, gold, mother of pearl, and synthetic opal.
Each bow is made with the same care and quality craftsmanship found in all Michael Vann bows. The sticks are traditional Pernambuco with frogs of either ebony or bison horn. The finishings can be gold, silver, silk, synthetic whalebone, bison horn, mother of pearl and synthetic opal. View our gallery of currently available bows below.
