    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, 3/4 and 1/2 size.

    This carbon fibre bow has a pernambuco veneer, ebony frog with abalone eyes and slide and a three-piece adjuster.

    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.

    Vn282 “Asari Fusion”, carbon fibre, China

    $ 480.00

    Just as the name “Asari Fusion” combines traditional, exotic and modern elements, so does this attractive and unusual-looking bow. Genuine snakewood has been used for the frog, along with sterling silver mounts, with the same materials appearing in the three-piece button. The carbon filament stick is a dark grey colour, which gives it a slightly “space-age” look. The bow provides strength and warmth in legato passages, and precision where clear articulation is needed.

    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.
