3/4 - Good French Cello bow, Ary France
This French 3/4-sized cello bow is an elegant piece that features excellent sound and playing properties. It was built approx. 1990. The strong round stick was made of pernambuco wood and is a clear example of good craftsmanship, as the tastefully curved, long head demonstrates. The nickel mounted ebony frog is decorated by beautiful Perl eyes, a white shimmering mother-of-pearl slide and a one-part adjuster. This bow is perfectly preserved and has its balance-point in the lower half, measured at 23.3 cm of 67.8 cm total length, including the adjuster. It was worked over in our workshop and is offered ready to play, with a special recommendation due to its strong, large, precise and clear sound.
