    Vn304 “Schumann”, beech wood, China, 2021

    $ 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 in 3/4 and 1/2 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, 3/4 and 1/2 size.

    Vn306 “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.

    Vn278 JonPaul “Fusion” violin bow, USA

    $ 295.00

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

    $ 350.00

    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.
