I have been shopping for bass bows and was shown one stamped with the name Clark. The man in the violin shop told me he's an Ohio bow maker, but I can only find one reference to him on the internet for a german bow in the cincy bass cellar, for 850. (Coincidentally, this is what the string shop is selling this french bow for.) Has anyone heard of this bow maker? I'd like to reference the price to make sure I'm not paying too much. (I don't trust my french bowing ability to be sure it's a good bow!) Thanks to all who respond.
