What makes Kennedy Violins bows the best on the market? We purchase each bow directly from the maker – a rare business practice that lowers our cost so we can pass the savings on to you. Each bow is inspected and set up in our Vancouver, Washington shop. We guarantee that the quality and craftsmanship of your bow will be far superior to any other bow at this price point.
