L'Archet Brasil Half Mounted Ipe French Bass Bow
Our French Half Mounted Bass Bow, crafted from aged Brazilian ipe wood, offers a unique blend of tradition and modernity. Each bow bears the stamp of an individual L'archet Brasil bow maker, ensuring a personalized touch that reflects our commitment to excellence.
Aged Ipe Wood: Our bass bows are meticulously crafted from aged ipe wood, a Brazilian hardwood known for its durability and tonal qualities. The result is a bow that not only stands the test of time but also enhances the sound of your instrument.
Half-Mounted Nickel Frog with Parisian Eye: The frog, half-mounted with nickel, features an elegant Parisian eye design. This meticulous craftsmanship ensures durability and adds a touch of sophistication to your playing experience.
Abalone Slide and Bone Tip: The abalone slide and bone tip contribute to the bow's aesthetic appeal while maintaining functionality. These details showcase the attention to detail that defines L'Archet Brasil bows.
Silver Winding and Goat-Leather Thumb-Grip: The silver winding adds a touch of refinement, complementing the goat-leather thumb-grip for enhanced comfort and control during your performances.
Stamped with Bow Maker's Name: Each bow proudly bears the stamp of the skilled bow maker, showcasing the individuality and expertise that goes into crafting every L'Archet Brasil bass bow.
Ipe Wood vs. Pernambuco: While Pernambuco has been the preferred wood for bows for centuries, the scarcity and regulations surrounding its sale have led us to explore alternative options. The introduction of ipe wood in our lineup has proven to be a remarkable choice. In blindfold tests, our professional players couldn't distinguish between ipe and pernambuco bows of similar price ranges.
L'Archet Brasil remains committed to offering ipe bows, even when pernambuco becomes available again for export. Discover the exceptional playability and tone production of our French Nickel Mounted Bass Bow, carefully selected from a vast range to provide you with the best musical experience.
In-Home Trial and Customization: We understand the importance of finding the perfect bow that suits your playing style. Arrange an in-home trial to experience the L'Archet Brasil difference firsthand. If you have a specific bow maker in mind, contact us to inquire about availability. Please note that winding styles may vary, adding a unique touch to each bow.
