60.8 grams, commissioned in 2016 for Bay Fine Strings. Example among the best of Thomachot's work.
World class contemporary French bow maker who has trained many of the most eminent bow makers active today. He frequently judges at the most prestigious international bow making competitions. The modern revival and interest in bow-making has been led by makers such as Stéphane Thomachot in France. Thomachot has his own model which he has not deviated from for the last 15-20 years (similar to that of Sartory in feel but more supple). He makes quartet bows : violin, viola and cello, mounted on ebony and silver or ebony and gold.
Thomachot's bow making style remains very personal, and is also inspired by the famous bow makers of the 19th century and early 20th century. Concerning the sound, the making is marked by the great masters of the first half of the 19th century.
