This fine French 3/4 cello bow, a historic piece with an original brandmark from one of the most highly esteemed bow making workshops, was created by Charles Louis Bazin around 1940 – immediately before France was occupied in World War II, a period which brought to an end one of the most successful and productive phases in the history of the Bazin family company. For nearly 100 years until that time, the Bazins had shaped French bow making, and this bow illustrates the confidence with which Louis Bazin continued the artisanal heritage of several generations. With its comparatively light weight of 59.5 g and a balance point which feels well-centred at 22.2 cm of the total length of 66.8 cm including the button, this French 3/4 cello bow is very pleasant to play and is forgiving about some technical imprecisions in playing. Its aesthetics ― a moderately thick round stick of orange-brown pernambuco and its classic features with a silver-mounted ebony frog, mother-of-pearl eye and three-part silver button ― also make it a motivating musical partner for young musicians, and with our trade-in policy, you can easily exchange it for when you upgrade to an excellent full-sized model from our catalogue later on. Ready to play and in top condition, this French 3/4 cello bow with its unmistakable French character creates a warm and elegant sound, providing the perfect foundation for advanced young musicians to pursue their musical training.
