    Carbow Grunberger carbon fiber bow (not fiberglass and not a Coda bow). Modeled after Jean Grunberger's (whose bows are used by Francois Rabbath, among others) award winning wooden bows that around $4K. Very nice choice for a serious student, jazz bassist, or backup for a professional orchestra player. It's a very good value and produces an excellent tone with great playability for the cost, and is virtually indestructible. Easily outplays pernambuco bows for the same price or higher. The bow is in good shape but needs to be re-haired and re-gripped. This particular bow is on the lighter side of the Grunberger models- around 132 grs.

    Photo show a latex rubber grip, which i removed, in case you're wondering what that is.

    $800 (price suggested to me by Aaron Robertson of Robertson's Violins).
    Email me to discuss shipping- woulf prefer to have a case to ship in.
