From the workshop of Thomas & George Martin: Working closely with a
leading bow maker we have introduced the “Claude Marchand” bow. They
are available in both French style (modeled on Vigneron and Sartory)
and German model (inspired by the old H.R. Pfretchner). Only the finest
pernambuco wood and silver mountings are used. Balance and playability
are the first consideration. They are priced to suit any budget but
many are used by top professional players.
The Martin’s always bring a bunch of bows with them to the ISB and
European Bass Conventions, and they always sell out! Gary was quick to
play through the bows in Copenhagen at the Bass2012 convention and
selected a German & French bow and bought them right away! So
although we will get more from the Martin’s in future shipments, these
first bows are hand selected by Gary…the crème de la crème!
