I’m excited to promote this German octagonal stick, as it’s the best pernambuco violin bow I’ve ever found under $2,500. There are many Dorfler bows on the market – this is by far the best one in their line.
I highly recommend this bow to intermediate to advanced violin players. The bow has an extremely good balance point and brings a great sound out of the violin. I love playing on this bow with my line of European violins including my Kowalski violin and Topa. It is very complimentary to these instruments.
After playing on this bow for many weeks, I found the bow aided so much in the ability to help create a clean sound with advanced articulation passages. It is the best bow I’ve tested in this price range! It is a medium weight bow – the one that I’ve been testing weighs about 61g.
