This French bow is ready to play and embodies all of the good playing attributes that bows from France are famous for. With its Parisian eye and the yellow-orange mother-of-pearl slide, the nickel silver fittings of the bow are both straightforward and elegant in equal measure. Its bright, warm, rounded, nuanced tone is amongst the characteristics that confirm it is a piece made by a talented hand.
