  6. [color=#191919][font=Verdana, Arial, sans-serif][size=4]Steffen Kuhnla "Shop" French bow for sale. Bought new just a few months ago, in December 2016, from String Emporium, Arizona, USA, for $1185 + VAT + shipping. Fantastic Sartory copy weighing 136-137gms, made especially for String Emporium & selling fast in the US. Great orchestra bow, draws big sound, great spiccato, & really responsive. Plays like a much more expensive bow. I'm playing mostly German now, so it is just hanging in my studio. Selling for 1050€.
