contrabas strijkstok, 1/8, French style, brazil wood, rond
Dörfler’s Brazilwood bows are a matter of fact. Here an optimally finely adapted trio is put to use: Massaranduba for the stick, genuine ebony from tropical Africa for the frog and finest mother of pearl or iris for the eyes and slides.
As Massaranduba is very heavy and hard, these bows lie particulary well in the hand of the musician. The dark black, very dense heart wood of the frog lends the play with these bows a pronounced harmonic tone.
