For more than three generations, the Dörfler family has manufactured cello bows of superior craftsmanship based on the style of the French bow maker Tourte.
The high-quality and sonorous master bows made by Dörfler are known and recognized all over the world. In 2013, Dörfler won two prestigious awards at the China International Violin Making and Bow Making Competition (CIVMC) in Beijing. Dörfler master builder Günther Spätling received the gold medal in the cello bow making category, and the silver medal in the bass bow making category. The international jury of experts not only commended the handicraft work, quality and design of the individual bows. Professional musicians also tested the superb sound quality of the master bows.
