Double bass bow by W. R. Wild
This double bass bow is a quality piece with the brand mark "W. R. Wild" that was crafted approx. 1980 for the renowned GEWA company and bears the original brand above the frog. The bow features a total length of 75.1 cm and a total weight of 147.5 g, with its balance-point in the upper half. The round stick was made of excellent pernambuco wood; its head is nicely crafted and features an elegant, long nose. The nickel mounted ebony frog is decorated with a white mother-of-pearle eye, a classical and tasteful setup. With some minor traces of use this bow is perfectly preserved. We offer it ready to play after a complete work-over by our expert luthiers.
