FT: My German for your French

Discussion in 'For Sale: Double Basses' started by cultrvultr, Jan 21, 2013.

  1. I play french bow, but picked this up from the classifieds from Dave Hoskings (the Bass Matt guy) to try out German bow. It's a nice bow, but German style is not for me.

    I'd like to trade for a french bow of similar quality, CF or wood. Here is info about the bow and some pics from Dave. I've only had it a few weeks so it looks identical to the pictures.

    "A well maintained Arcos Brasil carbon fiber German Bow. It came with the Shen Bass that I bought new in 2010. It sees little use as it's quite light: Johnson Strings offers one that weighs 123.2g.
    Upton Bass rehaired it with black hair.
    The imitation whalebone sticker is beginning to unpeel but it does not affect playability. It's there mainly for visual effect.
    Bow length: 30".
    Hair length: 22.5".
    Frog height: 1 3/4".
    New, these are offered at over $400 (Johnson & A440)."
