This master violin bow stamped Bernard Millant, an excellent French bow of German provenance, was made by Roderich Paesold and commissioned by the renowned Parisian workshop Bernard Millant – and its outstanding acoustics and playing properties confirm that it is a worthy bearer of Bernard Millant’s stamp.

Only the finest works from Roderich Paesold’s hands were considered worthy of his joint endeavour with Bernard Millant, one of the top addresses of 20th century French bow making. And this Paesold violin bow deserves the distinction of bearing Millant’s original stamp thanks to its expressive craftsmanship, its excellent playing properties and its truly French sound. At first glance it is evident that this was the work of an experienced and skilled hand: this is clear in such details as the octagonal stick of finely structured pernambuco, the head with its delicate aesthetic, and the premium-quality fittings with their ebony frog, Parisian eye and three-part slide. The bow’s aesthetic appeal is a perfect match for its musical properties, and with its centrally positioned balance point that feels slightly inclined towards the frog, it is perfectly balanced, lies comfortably in your hand and can be brilliantly controlled, even in technically challenging passages. After having set up this fine violin bow at our workshop, we have made it ready to play and are pleased to offer it with our trade-in guarantee. Its powerful, large sound and dynamic nature has all of the radiant clarity of the art of truly French bow-making.
