Pierre Testa, a master craftsman from Paris whose work is well-known and highly sought after amongst professional musicians and connoisseurs, fashioned this exquisite contemporary viola bow around ten years ago. A young French viola bow with excellent playing properties and acoustics, the bow’s firm round stick of finely structured red pernambuco has moderate thickness and good elasticity. With a striking point that feels well-centred at exactly 25.4 cm of its total length of 74.7 cm, it has the perfect blend of fluid play and a powerful sound. The exceptionally crafted and sterling silver-mounted ebony frog has an elegant mother-of-pearl eye as ornamentation. The entire aesthetic of this bow, which features the original “P. Testa Paris” mark, demonstrates its creator’s confident hand, highly refined sense of style and professional experience. Its artisanal qualities correspond to the distinguished, strong, bright, large voice that this outstanding viola bow creates with its magnificent volume. We preserved the original winding in the process of meticulously setting up the bow at our workshop for stringed instruments, and we warmly recommend this bow to sophisticated viola players as a reliable selection made by a renowned contemporary master.
