Viaduct Violins created the line « Louis Simon Ouchard » model bows in 2009 to fill the demand for French contemporary bows of professional quality but at a reasonable price.

Louis Simon bows are built after the model of EA Ouchard, a famous French bow maker of the XX° century, deeply involved in French tradition, who worked in Paris and Chicago.
Each bow is made using only finely seasoned pernambuco, and is offered in both silver or gold mountings.
The frog is made after the Hill model used by EA Ouchard for his best bows.

Each bow is numbered, on the stick (under the frog) and on the underslide.
and bears the two following stamps:
« Louis Simon A Paris » on one side
« EA Ouchard », on the other side
