We unite the time-honored traditions of bowmaking with the future of advanced materials to pioneer a family of bows unsurpassed in performance and beauty.
Reverently referred to as a ‘Grandfather of Composites’, Stan (together with Roger Bacon, the inventor of carbon fiber) fabricated the earliest carbon fiber parts ever made. One notable part, the NOL ring, when accidentally dropped by Stan revealed a uncommonly sonorous resonance and inspired what eventually became the CodaBow. Despite numerous scientific publications, patents, ASTM standards, and some of the highest industry awards to his credit, Stan considered pioneering the carbon fiber bow to be his greatest professional contribution to humanity.
Pioneer / Material Scientist
One of his generation's most respected traditional bow makers, Roger personifies a passion for excellence in bow making. Handcrafting fine pernambuco bows in the French tradition for or over 40 years, Roger has developed a style that is recognized worldwide for its elegance and playability. His bows can be found in the hands of the finest players of our time and in permanent residence in the Smithsonian Institution’s musical instrument collection.
Master Bow Maker
A chance encounter with Stan soon after Jeff graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Aerospace Engineering redirected his gaze from exploring galaxies far far away to pioneering beautiful new frontiers here on earth. Jeff’s expertise in structural design and his passion for music lent themselves extraordinarily to the science of improving bow performance through advanced technologies. Jeff considers working with such industry giants as Stan and Roger to be his greatest professional honor.
