We have received reports of the death of Paolo Pamiro, a sought-after French-Italian bowmaker who exhibited in Cremona.

Paolo was 50 years old.

No further details are presently available.


  • Absolutely devastating news. I happen to perform on two of his bows regularly and my father, Dov Schmidt – who is in the trade – has been a tremendous supporter of his making for many years. A lovely man with workmanship and wood selection second to none. May his legacy live on through every sound and bow stroke. RIP
