  1. Does anyone know about Conrad Gotz? I have one of his bows which is rumored to be 50 years old however I know nothing about him.

    What would you like to know?

    I also have one of his bows. My instructor bought it at the NAMM show a few years ago. I visited their booth this year and picked up a catalog. It looks like their bass bow prices range from 200 to 1350 German Marks.

    I think Conrad Gotz was there and he looked older but maybe not old enough to be making them for 50 years. Then again, the company is "C.A. Gotz jr.", so maybe you have one of his dad's bows?

    His email is

  3. Thanks for some insight. What do you have for a Gotz bow? I don't really know much about mine other than its a German grip, it is made from Rainforest wood and that it is Octaganol. Conrad Gotz name is inscribed on the bow without a junior. It has three stars beside his name. Do they have a catalog that can be bought? The website that Gotz Jr. is sporting doesn't seem to be very helpful.
