About Eugene Sartory:
Eugene Nicolas Sartory, born 1871 in Mirecourt, France first apprenticed with his Father as a bow-maker but went on to work with Charles Peccatte (Dominique Peccatte’s nephew) and Joseph Alfred Lamy, or ‘Père Lamy’ as he was often known.
In 1889, Sartory set up his own workshops where he developed his now famous bow-style. A heavier, strongly built bow with a slightly wider head and shaft section which provided great stability and reliable handling. These bows were built consistently for decades and became universally recognised for their quality and playability by musicians of all types.
