    Full description

    This bow differs from many of the bows made in the period by members of the Bazin family, who, in setting out to copy great examples of French bow-making, such as F.X. Tourte, replicated even then some details of antique bows that were no longer so common. This bow is a copy of Tourte's model commonly called "Swan-head", due to the elongated shape of the bow's tip. This style was also widely used by other great archetiers such as Joseph Henry. Closer to what is expected from the proposal of a cello bow of the time, this model confers great stability and quick response while preserving a more delicate profile throughout the bow, in which the distance between the hair and the stick is slightly narrower.

    Violin by Gibertoni & Nalin, Milan, 2023

    By Gibertoni & Nalin  |  

    The hands of a master maker crafted this violin inspired by Antonio Stradivari's 1716 "Messiah". Gibertoni & Nalin’s great knowledge of the Cremonese tradition is clearly highlighted in this antiqued violin. For us, its high point is the varnish’s patina and wear beautiful replicated like a violin from the 18th century.
