About Jerry Pasewicz

Jerry Pasewicz began his career making his first violin and bow in 1978. After spending time in violin making school, working in violin shops and owning his own shop, he was hired to direct the workshop at Shar Products in 1988. At Shar he worked alongside multiple award-winning violinmaker and former Weisshaar foreman David Burgess, gaining crucial experience in the restoration of violin and bows. In 1992, armed with this experience, he was hired as an instrument restorer at the famed Jacques Francais Rare Violins in New York, under the direction of renowned restorer Rene Morel. In the Francais workshop Mr. Pasewicz not only had the opportunity to work on the finest instruments and bows in existence, but also to work for some of the world's finest musicians. He continued working under the direction of Maestro Morel for two and a half years, and continued doing work for Jacques Franšais until leaving Manhattan in 1998. During his time in New York, Jerry Pasewicz also had the honor of serving a bow making apprenticeship with multiple gold medal-winning maker David Samuels.
