    IMG_7440.JPG This beautifully crafted bow by Canadian master maker Bernard Walke (championed by Joel Quarrington and David Allen Moore) has served me well for many years, but I recently came across something a little lighter that I want to try and I am forced to part with it. I played it in two Boston Symphony auditions and it came with me to the final rounds.

    A high quality bow with a robust, chest voice kind of sound. Fantastic orchestra bow that dominates the string near the frog but can also pull a beautiful legato. The smaller Viennese style frog I had put on there (for my hand-hold preference) but can be easily replaced if a bigger Pfretchzner frog is desired.

    the weight (with hair) is: 150g
    hair length: 21 1/4 inches

    PM for trials and questions. Price flexible

    Hi there! Are you still selling this bow? If so, I'd love to try it out. I have a Walke hybrid and am thinking I want to move to a regular underhand stick.
