    Vn268 “Schumann”, beech wood, China

    $ 95.00

    “Schumann” bows with wooden sticks are an excellent model for entry level and lower grade players who prefer a traditional look and feel at a very affordable price. Like their carbon fibre counterparts, these Schumann bows have neatly-made ebony frogs fitted with Parisian eyes and nickel silver mounts, and their sticks are well-shaped and cleanly finished. A bi-coloured, imitation whalebone lapping completes an attractive, inexpensive bow.

    Available for 4/4, 3/4 and 1/2 violin.

    Vn236 “Schumann”, carbon fibre, China, 2020

    $ 115.00

    “Schumann” carbon fibre bows are visually attractive, with cleanly-finished ebony frogs featuring Parisian eyes and colourful mother-of-pearl. The sticks share the now-common “tweed” style finish we see with many other carbon fibre bows of this value. The performance, especially in the context of the price, is a stand-out, with a clean, crisp spiccato, excellent articulation, even at the tip during fast string crossings, and a steady, smooth legato. All in all, a bow that’s hard to look past.

    Available in 4/4 and 3/4 size.

    Vn274 “Schumann” carbon fibre, China, 2020

    $ 250.00

    “Schumann” carbon fibre bows are visually attractive with cleanly-finished ebony frogs featuring Parisian eyes and nickel silver mounts. This model has a dark red-brown stick, subtly flecked to look like pernambuco wood. As a result this well-performing bow has a far more traditional look than the more common “braided” or “tweed” style finishes we are used to seeing with this grade of carbon fibre bow.

    $ 350.00

    This well-finished, silver-mounted, Chinese 3/4 size violin bow is marketed under the “Schumann” brand, although the stick itself is not stamped. The workmanship is very clean, and the pearl slide is particularly attractive. The stick, made from “Ipe” wood, a fine-grained alternative to pernambuco, is very steady on the string, articulates well and has a strong, clear spiccato. Silver mounts on a bow of this price is remarkably good value for money.

    C419 violin bow stamped “Dodd”, Germany, late nineteenth or early twentieth century

    $ 595.00

    As with violins, bows produced by the large manufacturing workshops in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Germany, were named after famous makers, “Tourte” being the most popular stamp. F.X. Tourte’s English contemporary, John Dodd’s identity was also frequently borrowed, as was that of another, later English maker, James Tubbs. This light, elegant bow draws a warm, creamy sound, and sits steadily on the string for fast legato strokes.

    C472 Unstamped, Germany, late nineteenth or early twentieth century

    $ 595.00

    Despite its relatively plain appearance, this German violin bow has very pleasing playing characteristics, with a clean, smooth spiccato close to the balance point, and good legato and martelé qualities. Extra thickness in the round pernambuco stick has given it a weight that can transit to use as a light viola bow. Even so, the bow doesn’t feel heavy in the hand, and draws a warm, flexible sound.
