French violin bow by Morizot freres. This Morizot freres violin bow is a particularly fine and well-made specimen from one of the most renowned bow-making ateliers in the modern French lutherie tradition. It was built around 1950, at the height of the creative output of the family business that was founded in 1919 by Louis Joseph Morizot. During those halcyon years, L. Morizot’s sons made bows that are prized to this day for their sophisticated visual aesthetics and extraordinarily good playability. The violin bow we offer here features a strong, perfectly balanced stick with a weight distribution typical of a Morizot model. The round stick is made of reddish brown pernambuco and has a nickel-mounted ebony frog embellished by a nickel button and a Pearl eye in the classic Morizot style. The total length of the bow is 74.3 cm, with a balance point that feels centrally weighted, slightly shifted towards the upper half of the stick, and is measured at 27.4 cm, including the button. With its agile, strong and light response, this Morizot violin bow would very well suit an experienced, discerning violinist who knows how to appreciate its strong sound that is rich in overtones and beautifully French in character. It was made ready to play by our luthiers and includes a certificate. As usual at Corilon, with a 30-day right of return and unlimited trade-in guarantee.
