A Strong Stiff Heavy Snakewood Cello bow

£120

Item code VCB6

This bow has a round snakewood stick, sterling silver mounting, abalone slide and eye, and an ebony frog.

It's heavy at 86.5 grams, and the weight is distributed towards the tip with a balance point of 267mm.

The stick is fairly stiff, and the stiffness and weight make this a very powerful bow with good agility for loud fast playing. Quiet passages are also very well controlled.

The tone is centred and dark emphasising the fundamental, this bow maintains control of the string almost to a fault.
