    A great french bow made by Louis Bazin in Mirecourt France around 1935, but unstamped. 2011 certificate of authenticity from A. Gartsman fine violins, said to be a "fine and typical example of the maker's work".

    • 146 grams
    • 53.5 cm playable hair length
    • new silver button made by Lee Guthrie

    Bow plays great and has a big warm sound. There is what looks like a repair at the tip which was checked out and okayed by Lee Guthrie (master bow maker in Minneapolis).

    $2800 shipped to USA address. Comes with hard case.

    The trial is for about a week, and I'll update as soon as it comes back, if it does. Thanks for the interest.

    Fixed typo that said hair length was 63.5cm! It's actually 53.5cm. Sorry!
