The Gary Karr Model Carbon Fiber Double Bass Bow is the most well-known of any Carbow Models. This unique bass bow is made in France. The original design was by Jean Grunberger, award winning bow maker.
Stamp: Carbow (French placement).
Stick: Black carbon fiber round shape.
Frog: German style snakewood frog, mother of pearl slide, no eye.
Button: Snakewood button.
Wrap: Black leather wrap over nickel wire.
Specs: 140-141 grams, 68 cm overall length.
Comment: Unbleached hair. Designed by J. Grunberger, but not stamped so. Specifications for this German model bow were requested by Gary Karr. It is a bit shorter, specifically weighted to 140-141 grams, and is ideal for the player who wishes to emulate Mr. Karr's famous “slow bow” technique.
