Weight: 81.6g, Balance: 9 1/2"

Maker: V. Schaeffer


Smooth and sweet, this bow is sure to draw out the best sound from your cello. In the upper range, this bow allows the cello to sing freely, adding a lot of color and warmth. The lower strings respond quickly to this bow, allowing for a crisp start to every note. When pushed, this bow projects easily, however, it does not lose its sweetness that shines in more delicate passages. This bow tracks smoothly, aiding in maintaining a consistent contact point on any string. 

Stamp: V. Schaeffer

Round stick, gold winding, gold mounted, pernambuco
