"The bow has a clear sound, fantastic balance, clean articulation, is easily capable of producing the full dynamic range and feels very comfortable in the hand.
In all honesty I was thinking of a McGill bow as a second bow but now I have one it has become my first bow in the orchestra at the Royal Opera House".
David Peller, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House
"I recently commissioned Andrew to make me a bow. I am delighted with it, both in appearance and playing quality, and now use it in preference to my Morizot. I warmly recommend his work without hesitation".
Nick Howson, BBC Philharmonic,
Marchini String Quartet
"Andrew McGill is a master craftsman. He is a very gifted restorer and repairer to whom I entrust implicitly my fine old French bow. I am also the proud owner of one of Andrew's cello bows, which draws the sound beautifully out of my instrument with a velvety finish. It is a joy to feel a bow so well balanced in the hand, whilst at the same time being so alive from head to frog, giving me the ability to produce a wide range of tonal colours".
Trevor Burley, freelance cellist
