For the contrabass, the term “classical bow” is not so easily defined. While searching for a suitable model, I stumbled across this bow in the Germanisches National Museum in Nuremberg. The frog and tip remind me of bows I know from the region around Salzburg; to me, they actually call to mind the forms of a cello bow. However, the bow is too large to be a cello bow, and my reconstructions proved to have ideal characteristics for the contrabass. Played overhand and with a perfect length for longer passages, this model has much more to offer than just its unique optics.

    From some models I have unsaleable samples that I can send for viewing. They then serve as a basis for discussion on the way to your optimal bow, which I will be happy to make for you personally.

    Customer satisfaction is very important to me in every order.


    A down payment of approx. 1/3 of the purchase price enables the order to be processed quickly. The balance will be paid after satisfaction.


    If, contrary to expectations, the bow does not please, the deposit can be refunded except for a handling fee of 100,- Euro. The circumstances of the order and deposit are subject to personal agreement.


    I look forward to our exchange,
