    Hey everyone,

    I have sadly decided to part ways with my beautiful baroque bass bow made by Harry Grabenstein.

    This is a really great stick made by a true master archetier.

    The bow is made of African Blackwood with a Snakewood frog.

    The bow's weight is: 92 g

    I am asking $1700.00 shipped to the continental US.

    Please pm if you have any questions.

    Yes it is!
     
  7. Hi, I am not interested in buying your bow but I was wondering if you could give me an idea of how African Blackwood works as a material for making bows (I had considered using it to make a bow). If you could give me an idea of how it differs from a bow made with "traditional" woods that would be great.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    I'm afraid I cannot offer much in terms of how it relates to other materials since I have not made a bow myself. It does seem to pull a darker sound than my pernambuco bows, which is why I am selling it. That could be this individual piece of wood. Other pieces of blackwood could produce a different sound.
