We have imported beginner bass bows and student bass bows in Brazilwood and Pernambuco from a family of good bass bow makers in China.
They have been making Pernambuco Bass Bows and Brazilwood Bass Bows for three generations and are quite well trained. These bowmakers are still able to obtain stocks of hard-to-find pernambuco in sizes large enough for bass bows.
Please call to arrange a bow trial. 800-246-2277 in Canada and the US. or Call 949-493-8323 Worldwide.
Many teachers who come into our shop with their students to try pernambuco bass bows have chosen this bow over others costing hundreds of dollars more. The workmanship is superb, with excellent fittings, a good choice of hard, strong sticks that produce a warm, yet focussed tone. Click thru for more info.
We needed a genuinely good (that is to say, consistently good) pernambuco bass bow that we could offer for under $500, so we took our ideas to China and had this bow built. Its specifications came from years of comments from many well-known teachers who rely on Lemur to find good values for their students.
