Comment: The ARY 500 French Model Pernambuco Bow has a well-proportioned frog to allow for a wider ribbon of salt and pepper hair. Ary uses their trademark deep cherry color on these nickel silver mounted bows, with "cordovan crocodile" embossed leather wrap. These bows are made with an asymmetrical head to balance the pressure of play. They're a great choice for advancing students or even as a second bow for an orchestra professional or teacher.
Lemur Music offers Otto Durrschmidt bows in three quality levels. AB600 is the least expensive. It is a Workshop or Nickel Silver Quality Bass Bow. The wood is always good quality Pernambuco. The Master Bow maker designs the bows then supervises every step of the work. Not all Master Bow Makers offer Workshop quality bows; they are a wonderful way to experience the highest quality standards for a fraction of the cost of a Master Bow.
