One of the best known bow makers in Italy, Walter Barbiero enjoys a vast reputation as one of the leading archetiers of his generation. He makes bows for all string instruments and all periods. His bows are played by top musicians such as Isabelle Faust, Mario Brunello and more.
He received a diploma from the Conservatoire “A. Steffani” of Castelfranco Veneto with Luca Volpato, and a diploma at the “Ecole Nationale de Musique et de Dance” in France with H. Suignard.
He has a particular passion for baroque and classical bows. As such, he has made bows for Giuliano Carmignola, who used one to record Vivaldi concertos for Deutsche Grammophon. Another recording featuring one of his bows is Viktoria Mullova’s Bach Sonatas and Partitas for Onux.
His bows differ from the others for their soft and elegant sound but above all for their good technical characteristics. He always prioritises the player as he feels that musicians can best express their thoughts, emotions and music through his bows.
Walter's bows are praised and performed by many high-profile players around the world. His bows possess a refined sound quality usually associated with the French masters. This baroque bow is a wonderful example from this maker.

MyLuthier was started by two friends while they were studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London. The idea was to provide musicians with exceptional instruments at a price they can afford. We travelled Europe in search for the best contemporary makers and we’re proud of our selection and the partnerships we’ve developed.
