      Full description

      This bow is among the most spectacular pieces this great French mastermaker ever made. It combines elegance in its design, craftsmanship, and superb quality of the material used. Based on the delicate and highly sought-after Voirin style, with its rounder and smoother aspect, this bow is in mint condition, noticeable by the barely unharmed fire stamp "C. BAZIN"  placed on the stick over the frog. The stick shaping is precise, neat, sophisticated, and made of the most magnificent deep-flamed Pernambuco wood and astonishing light reflection of dark-brown color. The silver mounting is no less exquisite. This bow's sound quality, historical importance, and superior craftsmanship quality prove why the Bazin family turned out to be one of the most influential and admired families in the French bow-making tradition and can easily fulfill the needs and desires of great musicians or collectors.

      Charles Nicolas Bazin

      Charles Nicolas Bazin, inheriting his father's bow-making legacy at 18, propelled the family workshop in Mirecourt to prominence. Evolving from the angular Peccatte style to softer, slender bows under Voirin's influence, Bazin's craftsmanship flourished. Mentoring future luminaries and expanding production, his legacy endured through generations, shaping the bow-making world. Learn more
