Jean-Pascal Nehr follows his apprenticeship in bow-making in Mirecourt under the supervision of Master Bernard Ouchard from 1974 to 1977.
He opens his first studio in Paris in 1979 where he begins making bows inspired by François Nicolas Voirin
(The Modern Tourte) 1833-1885.
Since 1990 he works in Marseille dedicating his time in the creation of bows from the string quartet. From then on his style is more and more inspired by the French school of the beginning of the 19th century in particular that of François Xavier Tourte.
Always looking for exceptional raw materials, his very particular bows are played by many musicians around the world.
