      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.

      Charles Louis Bazin

      Charles Louis Bazin was the third generation of the family, at the time already settled as one of the most influential workshops of Mirecourt. His bows are noted for their exquisite balance, responsiveness, and playability. His innovative designs and refined techniques earned him renown among both musicians and fellow craftsmen.Learn more

      Violin by Giovannetti & Schultz, Florence, 2023

      By Giovannetti & Schultz  |  

      The hands of a rising star-maker crafted this Guarneri model violin. Giovannetti & Schultz faithfully represent the new generation of Italian violin makers, bringing modern thinking to the violin-making scenario. In our opinion, this violin highlight is the strong and deep, well-made antiquing and the present varnish wear and patina that brings it to life.
