After spending time researching folk instruments from around the world, Andrew decided he would make his own.
Inspired by his love of the Blues, he crafted a one string “Diddly bow”. Made from ceramic and parts found in his workshop, including bits off old motorcycles, he even hand winds the pickups from recycled wiring.
His success with the first bow then encouraged him to create a small collection of custom bows.

Andrew has now had commissions for his Diddly bow’s from all around the world.
One of his more famous clients is guitar legend Justin Johnson who commissioned Andrew to make him his own custom bow.
Andrews Diddly bows are both beautiful works of art and superb sounding instruments.
