Master-crafted, Hand-made bows, Nickel Silver and Silver Quality Levels
Pernambuco Bass Bows in this price range will exhibit markedly better control, bounce, and projection. In this price range we begin to see more variation in the individual maker's models. The Pernambuco is higher quality, finer & denser grained making the bow more responsive in both starting the string, and in controlling the downbow.
Variations in the frog's shape in both German and French models make it possible to better fit the frog to the player's hand as-well-as controlling/moving the balance point. Balance point is relative to the overall weight of the bow and there are many ways to move balance either forward (toward the tip) or toward the hand. Size and weight of the frog is one way, length of the bow behind the frog is another, adding extra wire and leather in the grip, changing the shape of the tip, ... well, you can see this is a complex holistic paradigm. Suffice to say, we begin to see individual definition of bow characteristics in the various models the maker's present in this price range.

He chooses fine grained wood that is aged longer so it is lighter, stronger and more flexible than the woods he uses in his workshop model bows. These fine sticks are cut to be slender but strong in the neck to offer support for the head which is nicely shaped but not overly large. The bows are very nicely balanced for articulate play. The hard, dry sticks draw a dark, clear tone with a ringing volume. These bows remain an exceptionally good value when compared to the price of other master-crafted pernambuco bows.Available for In-Home, In-Studio Bow Trial.Call 800-246-2277.
