Finest Quality German style Double Bass Bow
£2000

Recommended Posts

Finest Quality German style Double Bass Bow

Made by Thomas Acker, bought new from Stefan Krattenmacher in 2008.

Paid/Valued at $3000 Euro - about £2500, comes with a valuation certificate. The same bow today would cost nearer £2750, if not more.

Silver mounted ebony frog and silver screw. Finest quality Pernambuco stick. Salt and Pepper hair. 76cm long, hair length is 55cm, weight is 141g. Very responsive and articulate, good strong and clear sound and fits well in the hand.

Well suited to orchestra, chamber music and solo playing. This is an extremely good bow for a serious player - professional, advanced student or keen amateur, hence the asking price of £2000. New reduced price of £1850. Can come with a slim wooden case if required.

You are very welcome to come over to try the bow.

Thank you for looking.

Hi Edward

Thanks for your message and interest in the bow.

The hair length is 55cm.

Let me have a think about how best to do a trial of the bow, I'll get back to you on that in a few days.

Cheers.

Ian

Hi Ian,

I usually receive & returned trial bows via registered post within Europe, if that helps.

Cheers

Hi Ian,

That is all good. I'll PM you my details right now. Is it not possible to send it on to me this week if I transfer a deposit to you via PayPal tonight? It's just that I'm trying another bow as well that needs to be returned to Wohlleber in Berlin.
