Dorfler #8 brazilwood viola bow
For over three generations the Dörfler family have been making bows, producing a wide range catering for beginner students through to advanced players. The brazilwood for these well-made student bows is Massaranduba, a particularly strong, hard species. As a result, the stick has very good playing characteristics for the price. Their model #8 is made from the best selected wood, with a round stick and nickel silver mounts. The fully-lined ebony frog has Parisian eyes, and the bow is finished to a high standard. For those favouring European-made, wooden bows, this model represents great value for money.
