Lemur Music has been the go-to shop for double bass bows for more than 40 years. Our company's founder, Murray Grodner, was known to have the Golden Ear & the Golden Touch when selecting the best sounding and best playing double bass bows in the world. Since the mid-1960's, Lemur has set the Gold Standard for stocking the most extensive selection of first-rate bass bows.
Orchestra Teachers and their Students at all levels have thrived and developed better technical skills when playing Lemur Music's outstanding range of double bass bows. We have always kept an extensive assortment of bows for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Students. Bowmakers usually offer several quality levels of brazilwood pernambuco bows to choose from. And we do choose carefully to broaden our selection of bass bows to include a stick for any player's budget.
Whether you're an orchestra pro, a serious hobbyist, an amateur, or a semi-pro, we believe you will find the bow of your dreams at Lemur Music. We stock and special-order bass bows from the world's most eminent craftsmen. Our knowledgeable staff of orchestra musicians and bass teachers will expertly guide you to the most appropriate bow to take your performance to a higher, more expressive level.
Our shop in San Juan Capistrano is open Monday to Friday from 9-5, and Saturday 9-4. You are cordially invited to come browse and test bows from our Bow Drawers. Bring your own upright bass for the most satisfactory bow trial. Or draft one of Lemur Music's many in-stock upright basses; it's likely we have an instrument with the kind of bass strings you're accustomed to playing.
We also offer In-Home, In-Studio Bow Trial. One of our well trained Customer Service Reps can take you through a telephone selection process that determines which bows best suit your specifications. Over the past three decades we've sent out hundreds (whew!) of bass bows on trial, so we developed almost indestructible shipping tubes, insured door-to-door service thru FedEx, credit card approval, and an easy exchange process to insure the best, most complete bow trial in the industry.
