French 3/4 cello bow by Roger Gérôme

A rare piece with a highly esteemed name, this French 3/4-sized cello bow was made in approximately 1960 and bears the brandmark "Gérôme Devoivre" from the extremely successful workshop for which outstanding masters such as Georges Émile Barjonnet and Roger François Lotte produced top-quality work. With this bow, Roger Gérôme demonstrated abilities that could easily hold their own against his colleagues at Gérôme Devoivre. He chose a thick round stick of excellent light-brown pernambucco for this 69.7 g bow and gave it beautiful silver fittings, an ebony frog with a Parisian eye and a silver capsule button– sophisticated and classic features which perfectly correspond to the many qualities of this bow. Its powerful playing properties and warm large sound will motivate talented young musicians, and with our trade-in guarantee, they can easily upgrade to an outstanding full-sized bow from our catalogue at a later date. Now that it has been completely set up and made ready to play at our workshop, this authentic Gérôme bow is worthy of our special recommendation.
