The French pattern double bass bow takes its inspiration from the great French makers Vigneron for the head and Sartory for the frog. Fashioned from the finest pernambuco wood, these bows have silver mountings and are finished with mother of pearl and mammoth ivory on the tip. Balance and playability are the primary consideration. They are reasonably priced, and many are used by professional players. The stick measurements are 66.4cm excluding the button and 68.4cm including the button.
