I've been forced to switch from French to German due to a thumb problem. Consequently I am not using my Morizot bow. I bought it at auction at Skinner and it was fixed up by David Hawthorne who put a new frog on and also a wrap of fishing line to prevent a line in the wood from opening into a crack. He thought it was Morizot Freres, but was non-committal. It is straight, weighs 143 grams with hair, and plays very nicely. Unfortunately I cannot play it without great pain! Interested in trading for an equivalent German bow with someone in the opposite situations!
