Wehling's best testament is the commentary of satisfied customers. His attention to detail and ability to listen to his clients is truly old-world in the best sense of the term. He looks forward to discussing your needs in a bow or restoration soon.
“Using his bow is like driving a Ferrari. It’s so responsive, so fast. It has great sound and great spiccato. Usually a bow has one or the other. Put it this way: Imagine having a paintbrush that does anything you want.”
“I like a bow that’s hefty enough in its lightness to speak eloquently when you’re not quite sure what you’re going to say in an improvisational setting. After trying Matt Wehling’s bow in a wintry Minneapolis, I brought it down below sea level to humid Louisiana where his bow has become part of my arm and has yet to leave my fiddle strings alone.”
“It has such an open warm sound on my cello with a lively quality that will be fun to explore. You have a very bright future.”
“Matt Wehling is doing as fine work as I have seen anywhere, and combines meticulous and graceful craft with an uncanny sense of what each individual piece of wood is capable of, and the rare ability to realize every bit of it's potential. Every bow of his that I've played is a fascinating, living individual."
“His bows do such a good job of hugging the strings, even in soft passages.”
“I like Matt’s bows a lot. I own two fine bows – Matt’s being one – and three lesser bows. His gives a clear, very powerful sound. Matt works very hard and is an unassuming person.”
“Thanks for sending me this bow. It’s beautiful in every way. You do excellent work and your attention to detail is apparent in everything you sent, from the bow to the wrapping to the thoughtful accompanying letter on the nicely designed stationary.”
“I contacted Matt Wehling because my sister had bought a bow of his and highly recommended his work. When my gold-mounted bow needed a new tip, I was reluctant to entrust its repair with just anyone. Matt did an excellent job, and quickly returned my bow to me. I greatly appreciate knowing that I can always rely on Matt Wehling to provide consistently prompt and outstanding work.”
“Matt Wehling's viola bows have the ability to draw a beautiful, rich tone as well as be lively bows for chords and off the string playing. I like the flexibility combined with strength and strong tone this bow provides for me."
“I just got back from rehearsal where I was happily playing all day with the Ouchard bow you recambered for me. I am so pleased with it. I just wouldn't have imagined it would sound so much better and it feels much better, I'm so happy with it. Thank you very much."
