Comment: Meister Schicker had a great variety of silhouettes in his French Model bows. He makes the most of Snakewood, a notoriously difficult-to-work material and crafts a traditionally shaped French bow from snakewood. Overall the weight is higher in a snakewood bow, but the balance has been thoughtfully worked by using a snakewood frog. These bows are exceptionally articulate. I truly wish that Horst Schicker were still making bows. It was a pleasure to have his fine snakewood and pernambuco bass bows at Lemur. Toni Buffa Call for In-Home, In-Studio Bow Trial. 800-246-2277.
