Charles Nicolas Bazin established the Bazin workshop in Mirecourt in 1869. Always following the principles of Tourte, Bazins workmanship was of high precision and quality. Today bows of the Bazin's and the atelier led by the Bazin grandchildren in the 20th century are highly demanded by musicians worldwide. This recommendable violin bow was made in the Bazin atelier and is the result of many years of experience, excellent craftsmanship and well selected materials. The round stick features excellent high tension, gruppy reaction and elastic stiffness. The finished frog is nickel mounted and decorated with a nacre eye and pearl slide. The balance-point is well centered ,slightly pointing towards the lower half of the stick allowing perfect control. This excellent French Bazin violin bow produces a crystal, open, textured, radiant and typically French melting sound.
