Dominique Peccatte

Dominique Peccatte (1810-1874) was an influential French luthier and bow maker. He was apprenticed in Mirecourt and later worked with Jean Baptiste Vuillaume.

He is notable for adapting the "hatchet-shaped" type head — a model arrived at by Tourte — and is considered one of the most influential bow makers. His brother François Peccatte and nephew Charles Peccatte were also notable bow-makers. Peccatte’s two most well known pupils were Joseph Henry and Pierre Simon. He also purportedly taught François Xavier Bazin.
