Charles Louis Bazin: fine and powerful French cello bow (certificate J.-F. Raffin)

The magnificently curved head of this fine Charles Nicolas Bazin cello bow is a self-assured demonstration of craftsman excellence at its finest. This fine French cello bow was made by Charles Nicolas Bazin, founder of one of the most famous bow-making ateliers in all of France, when he was approaching the zenith of its professional success. This powerful is very handy and reacts instantly, a fine and lightweight yet powerfully tense, active virtuoso cello bow that has a delicately crafted round stick which reflects the highest quality. Made of the finest quality red-brown pernambuco, it measures 70.2 cm, and its classically tasteful premium fittings — a silver-mounted ebony frog, mother-of-pearl eye and silver capsule button — highlight its outstanding musical properties. The powerful and bright yet warm French sound of this cello bow, which has been maintained in very good condition, is complex and full of nuance. It can be played powerfully, its balancing point is measured at 23.2 cm, slightly towards the upper half of the stick, offering precision, action and decisive playing properties. This fine Charles Nicolas Bazin cello bow has been completely set up and made ready to play and is offered in fine condition. Its pedigreed provenance is confirmed by a certificate of authenticity by Jean-François Raffin, which is included in the price and does not need to be added as an extra option in the shopping cart.
