Paulus-master bows have been produced by four generations. In 1923 the family-owned company was founded by Otto Paulus. He was born in 1891 in Markneukirchen, the home of music instrument manufacturing. He passed on his great experience and love for this profession to his son Johannes O. Paulus who learned bow making from Adolf C. Schuster in Markneukirchen and who graduated successfully from master school in 1950.
Johannes O. Paulus took over the workshop of his master and kept it running until he retired at 78, but nothing could hold him back from coming back to the workshop of his son Günter A. Paulus .
At an early age, Günter A. Paulus discovered his love for the profession of bow making, he was led and qualified by his father. He received his master craftsman certificate in 1972 and kept on working in the workshop of his father until 1973, when he founded his own company.
Every bow gets adjusted strictly to the demands of the individual musician and to the requirements for the practical performance, by using highest perfection, artistic sensitivity and the right sense of personality.
In 2006 Günter A. Paulus passed away.
Jens Paulus continues the family business, now in its fourth generation.
