Anybody tried a Lothar Seifert german Modell Bass Bows. Wich is your opinion.????
yeah I've tried the lower priced bows and thought they were fair for that price range but don't own one
I bought a durrschmidt instead at the time because it was a little longer (and therefore for the same price a better bargain *LOL*)
Nickel-mounted bows are marked W. Seifert; silver-mounted bows are marked Lothar Seifert." There are also apparently "Meisterwerk" bows.
I own a "Lothar Seifert," which was originally owned, I believe, by Paul Ellison, and before me by my first teacher. It is an excellent bow. My bow could use a little more bounce, but that probably has more to do with the need for a recamber. No reason that one couldn't audition with this bow.
I have not played anyone else's bow in probably 8 years, so I can't really make a fair comparison.
i've had one for about 20 years. i love it. a few years ago i was toying with getting a kolstein that i liked a lot but stayed with the seifert. i seem to like it more and more over time.
hello Blaine can you tell us, wich modell is your Seifert Bow and the specifications(length, weigth, stick...). Thank you in advance.
it's an octagon German Lothar Seifert. It is lighter than about anything else I've played but i don't know the exact weight or length, sorry.
I have had two great Lothar Seifert french bows and they were both great quality bows for the money IMHO.
I have a Lothar Seifert german octagonal bow. I love the sound, but it's a bit on the heavy side. I can be more nimble with my Durrschmidt, but it has a way smaller tone to it. I have played other Durrschmidts that sounded better. I'm still searching for my dream bow.
All bows must be tried to be evaluated. There is no maker whose bows always strike a chord (sorry) with everyone. I've played on Kolsteins I hated and one that knocked me out. Same with W. Seifert. Each one is different.
I played on a Lothar Seifert german bow for a few years. It was an octagonal bow, but I am not sure of the weight. It was the first good bow I ever played on. It was good for playing on the string but not that great for spicato, especially heavy spicato.
