Danny & Mannon Hybrid Double Bass Bow – Hybrid French/German Grip “Thierry Barbé” Model
This Danny & Mannon double bass bow comes to us from our friends at Rubato Strings in Japan. These Asian bows are each unique and finely crafted. This “Thierry Barbé” Model represents an ingenious combination, neither strictly French nor German grip. With a smaller frog, it can be played in either over or underhand position. Carefully handmade, each of these distinct bows share remarkable balance.
