German 'Dodd' copy violin bow

SKU: C419

Bows produced by the large manufacturing workshops in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Germany were often stamped with the names of famous bow makers. “Tourte” is the most common example, while Tourte’s English contemporary, John Dodd, was also frequently imitated, along with another, later English maker, James Tubbs. This light, elegant bow draws a warm, creamy sound, and sits steadily on the string for fast legato strokes.
