Who plays a Rolland bow?

Long after Josef Suk called Rolland bows “fantastic” and Lord Menuhin dubbed them “a gift for the musician”, Rolland bows captivate yet other generations of star string players like Anne-Sophie Mutter, Lynn Harrell, Miriam Fried, Kim Kashkashian, Christian Tetzlaff and Julia Fischer.

More than 1,750 string players and collectors have acquired Rolland bows. The following lists but a few names, an evocation of the full body of musicians playing Rollands.

In October 2016, a gold mounted and diamond Rolland bow was auctioned in New York for US$ 26,700.00.

     " I wish to thank many more Musicians and Concertmasters who play my bows in orchestras Worldwide;
     Each musician coming to the studio brings insights and energy to perfect the bows;
     Major soloists steadily offered time and attention to my work. I am grateful to them for their generosity and dedication;
     May the bows faithfully serve their talent.”

     Benoît Rolland
