Fine French violin bow by Charles Nicolas Bazin (certificate J.F. Raffin)

This is one of our very best violin bows in the price range: a fine French silver mounted violin bow made on a Vuillaume model around 1890 by Charles Nicolas Bazin. Under C. N. Bazin’s direction, his family-owned atelier flourished into an extremely successful business and took its rightful place among the highest echelons of the French bow-making tradition. One indication of Bazin’s exalted status is his collaboration with some of the best and most exacting violin makers of his time, including Charles Brugere, for whom he made the silver mounted bow that we offer here. The round stick is made of the finest grade pernambuco and is wonderfully supple. The thickness and weight of the 60.1 g C. N. Bazin bow are perfectly distributed, with a perceptibly central balance point so that the bow feels lightweight and is extrenely easy to handle. This is a masterpiece that was created for a master; it comes with a certificate of authenticity and valuation provided by J.-F. Raffin, the world renowned Parisian bow-making expert. The powerful, outstanding sound drawn by this Charles Nicolas Bazin master bow is clear, precise and bright, conveying substance and character. The certificate of authenticity is included in the price and does not have to be ordered extra inside the shopping cart.
