    Price:
    2500
    Location:
    Tennessee
    Style:
    French
    Selling my beautiful gold mounted Kolstein french bow. I have had it for a few months and while it is an amazing bow, it just is not the bow for me. It has a very stiff stick made of beautifully figured pernambuco and all gold mountings including a gold tip plate. It pulls a giant sound out of any bass I have played with it and would make an incredible orchestral bow. Selling with a hard case.

    Hair length 21inches
    Stick (not including button): 26.5 inches
    Stick Including Button: 27.5 inches




    It has been appraised for $6500, and I am asking $4500 for it.


    PRICE DROP! $2500 shipped! OBO

    I am interested. Is it available for a trial? I am a long time Kolstein customer performing in Jacksonville Florida.

    Michael, I ended up having to write a rather large check to the IRS so right now I'm on the sidelines still looking. Good luck with the bow. I will keep an eye on it. JL

    Adding a picture if the middle of the stick, it really is a beautifully made bow.

    I know this will be the perfect bow for someone out there! Need to fund a purchase of another bow and would love to see this go to a new home!

    I won't be coming through Florida, but I am willing to do a trial if you pay in full and if you decide not to keep it just pay return shipping and I'll refund you!

    I never look at the upright stuff on Talkbass, but wow! I had no idea a bow could be worth thousands of dollars! :greedy:
