Stéphane Thomachot Cello Bow, Paris, France, 2000

*BOW SOLD OR UNAVAILABLE* For archive purposes only

This is a very fine example of Thomachot's mid-period work and in superb condition. It's a really fine player's bow, flexible but strong. Thomachot himself say there are three things to be considered when buying a new bow: sound, sound, and sound. This bow is no exception!


Thomachot's work rarely touches the secondary market, so this is an exceptional opportunity for a player or collector to acquire a tippy-top contemporary bow.


WEIGHT: 82 Grams

MOUNTS: Silver and Ebony
