As with the higher-grade (and silver-mounted) Horst John and D. Silveira violin bows, we're very pleased to offer the John Brasil bows, direct from the source of the wood that makes them so spectacular - the Pernambuco region of Brazil. We hand select each and every bow from hundreds offered to us, to find the very best for our violin customers, checking weight, balance, camber and straightness.
- Great balance, perfect spiccato
- Grips strings well
- Clean sound
- Brighter than silver mounted - great for warm violins
Brings out great depth and richness from your violin, a bow that really "sticks" in the strings. We match each bow to your instrument to find the perfect combination.
Top quality pernambuco sticks are outfitted with ebony frogs, fully lined with nickel mounts. Suitable for those looking for a great match to our Soloist, Michael Todd, or Kallo Bartok violin lines, these bows will satisfy the performance needs of the most advanced players, and even serve as tremendous backup bows for professionals of the highest caliber.
Typical weight is 60-62 grams
