S199, Doriane Bodart, Paris, France, 2009
This is a beautifully-made bow from one of the second generation of “new” French bow makers. Bodart trained with both Gilles Duhaut and Stephane Thomachot, who studied bow-making in the early 1970’s from the famous French archetier, Bernard Ouchard, in Mirecourt. Although the bow is on the heavy side at 62 grams, the balance and the fineness of the head give the bow a sense of lightness in the hand, while retaining good articulation and tone at the tip.
