A light stiff fast ipe cello bow

A light stiff fast ipe cello bow

£240

Item code VCB5

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

It's light at 80 grams, and the weight is well balanced with a balance point of 256mm.

The stick is fairly stiff, and the stiffness and light weight make this a fast lively bow with good agility.

The tone is bright and lively.

This bow should also be considered by viola players looking for a cello bow.

Ipe is a brazilian wood that has gained favour recently as a premium quality alternative to rare and endangered pernambuco.

The look and feel of this bow is indistinguishable from a pernambuco bow.
