Bows made by Philip Brown

At present we have the following models available for sale.

1) Fixed frog “sonata” bow usually in Snake-wood although I have made lighter versions in Rosewood. This is a bow I have made large numbers of. Its' very articulate feeling is like an extension of the hand. It's ideal for early repertoire with some people using this right up to Mozart (as Leopold indicates in his tutor). £1200including V.A.T.

2) Classical bow, copy of Dodd circa 1790. Pernambuco stick, ebony fittings.

3) Tourte copy circa 1780. This is a made after studying a very good playing bow by Tourte. Great playing characteristics.
