Reference: 4561 Bass Violin bow
Maker: Philip Brown, 2020
City: Newbury, England
Description: A Bass Violin bow. This is a model we have been developing for a few years now, it has been very well received. It’s based on a bow in the Kunst Historiches Museum, Wein. It,s made of very old West African Ebony of fine even grain. We have made it with a small amount of adjustment to the tension via a travelling frog.
Playing Qualities: What people like about these bows is the way the thick gut strings start up easily, there are various reasons why this bow does this but it certainly makes playing easier.
