Korean violin bows$ 60.00
Sturdy beginner bow with wooden frog. Available in 4/4, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 size.
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.

Vn246, 3/4 size Unstamped “Schumann”, China, early twenty-first century$ 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.

C478 3/4 size Unstamped, Germany, early-mid twentieth century$ 450.00
Despite its plain appearance, this German, pernambuco, three-quarter sized bow is lovely to play with. While it is a very typical length for this fractional size, the weight is more like that of a full-sized violin bow, making it a good choice for a more robust younger player who is advancing through the grades.

C230 European, unstamped, 7/8 size:$ 485.00
This bow has a brazilwood stick slightly shorter than the standard 4/4 length.
C479 3/4 size Unstamped, Germany, early-mid twentieth century$ 550.00
Good quality European fractional-sized bows are hard to come by, so it has been a pleasure to restore this finely-finished, pernambuco bow, and discover its playing characteristics. A steady legato, easily accessed spiccato, clean articulation and a good balance in the hand will make this a very suitable bow for an advanced younger player.
