Violin Bows for sale

I have recently returned from a trip to Europe where I carefully selected a number of special bows to make available to New Zealand musicians. I chose these bows for their playability and quality.

I invite interested musicians to make an appointment to try them at my violin shop "le violon rouge nz" in Auckland.

European 4/4 violin bow for sale


European 4/4 violin bow for sale

This European violin bow is a little bit of a mystery. It has no stamp, has a typical German frog, a Fench style button and mortice, and a stick that could be either French or a German copy of a French bow. 

It has a pernambuco stick, silver mounted, one piece button, ebony frog with a plain pearl eye. 

This nice and charming bow produces a crisp sound. Nice to play at the tip and easy to create a clean sound at the frog due to the light sensation at the frog. It has a good spiccato, with a jumping point around half way. 

This mystery bow has a charming character that can't be described. You will need to try it to feel it!
