    I am selling my beautiful French bow by the late maker, Rick Reeve. This is a fine example of Rick's wonderful craftsmanship with both wood and silver. This bow was purchased new from Rick's father, Harry, around 2005, but has barely been used since 2008, as I am a German bow player. The bow is handmade using some of the finest Pernambuco around, and features a solid silver tip, wrap, inlay and ferrule. Sadly, Rick is no longer with us, and there aren't many of these to go around.

    The bow's weight is just under 138 grams and the measurement from frog to tip is 26 and 1/4 inches; hair length is 22 and 1/2 inches; and the entire bow is around 28 and 1/4 inches from the screw to the tip.

    I love the look and feel of this bow, and I think it can draw out a loverly tone from the bass.
    It is available for trial in NYC. Please PM if you are interested in making some other arrangement to try out this terrific bow.

    Thanks, Will! I wish Rick were a little more known, but those who've played his bows love them.
    Bass players: please make me an offer if you're interested
