The octagonal stick bears Kurt Dölling's original brandstamp, it is made of high quality pernambuco wood, the strong stick plays very actively and features excellent bounce and tension. The finely hand-made ebony frog is silver mounted with a Parisian eye and adorned with a rose-white shimmering mother of pearl slide.
