S272 Bob Berg, Wellington, NZ, late 20th century
This is very representative of a number of prototype carbon fibre bows handmade in New Zealand by Bob Berg, an American double bass player in the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. Berg later moved to Indiana, USA, where his carbonfibre expertise was refined by William Duff into the modern Berg Bow. Although the finish on the head is slightly rough, this bow has excellent playing characteristics, with clear articulation, steadiness in rapid legato strokes and a great bounce.
