Paesold's skilled craftsmen first travel to Brazil to personally inspect and select trees, which are the best obtainable, for their production of Pernambuco and Brazilwood bows. However, before this wood can be used for bow making, it must be allowed to naturally air dry for many years. Only then does it fulfill the specific requirements needed to make Paesold bows. Weight, balance, and flexibility are the determining factors in the playing qualities of all bows. According to traditional methods and skills honed over generations of bow making, Paesold's craftmen have become expert at interpreting each piece of bow wood to achieve the optimum combination of these essential qualities.
