Certificates of Authenticity

Salchow & Sons certificates are cited by dealers, relied upon by auctions and trusted by musicians.

To protect the investment of your bow, a certificate of authenticity from a well-respected expert is highly recommended. Salchow & Sons continues to be in top demand from dealers, auctions and musicians. Certificates are signed by Isaac Salchow and backed by years of bench experience and academic study. Certificates cost 2.5% of value of the bow with a minimum of $400, and include a detailed description of your bow with quality photographs.

Bows are examined and photographed in our shop. We invite you to contact us before shipping.


Insurance Letters

It's not just an instrument; it's a valuable investment. To your own benefit, it is extremely important to properly insure your bow. 

We write insurance appraisals free of charge for all bows.

Please note: We thank you for respecting the intended use of these letters. They are issued only for personal use by owners when insuring their bows.
