Where can I try/buy a Yannick Le Canu bow?
My daughter had the pleasure of playing one of her instructors’ Y Le Canu bows today and loved it. Can’t find any for sale online and the maker doesn’t have a website. Messaged through the JF Raffin site, but don’t know if he sells through there. Thanks for any leads!
The Soundpost in Toronto has had quite a few of his bows... I bought mine there and have tried three others at the shop. They do sell pretty quickly, as they really are superb bows. Good luck.
I don’t see one on their website, but I sent them an email. Thank you!
Donald, you could try this:
That looks like a very old email address. Most old wanadoo addresses are now online dot fr.
Herman, my impression has been that he doesn't care much about the latest smartphone, or a website, but just loves making bows. That could have high appeal to some, and less to others.
Thanks so much!
https://www.pagesjaunes.fr/pros/09226693 seems to work. Same address. Confirms phone number. Adds facebook link.
Did you ask your daughter's instructor where he/she bought it and for how much? What if it were $6000? I don't know the maker, but doesn't sound like a $200 bow either.
Let us know what you find; I'm curious if he does commissions for folks in the states and what his current wait list is like.
Try calling Johnson string instruments. If they don't have any they are very knowledgeable and can make recommendations that may be comparable.
