Charles Louis Bazin was the third generation of the family, at the time already settled as one of the most influential workshops of Mirecourt. Trained under the guidance of his father, Charles Nicolas Bazin, a prominent bow maker himself, Louis Bazin quickly honed his skills in bow making, considered to be one of the finest and most consistent maker of the family.
Charles Louis assumed the family business in 1907 after the retirement of his father, who kept assisting his death in 1915. His son, Charles Alfred Bazin, also joined the workshop in 1922. The period in which Charles Louis ran the family workshop is remarkably consistent, and often recognized as the moment in which the shop had the access to the best materials, with an undeniably great outcome. Louis trained various makers, such as Granier, Jean-Claude Ouchard and Marcel Lapierre.
Drawing inspiration from the rich tradition of French bow making, he developed a distinctive style characterized by meticulous attention to detail and a profound understanding of the interplay between form and function.
Bazin's bows stand as a testament to his dedication to excellence. 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
