This Marco Raposo Double Bass Bow is made of beautiful Pernambuco. Marco Raposo Bows are produced with a balance between traditional and contemporary techniques – a subtle combination of precise machine work and fine hand detailing. This attention to quality and detail is evident in the hand-carved round stick of this bow. The finish is slightly glossy, which highlights the vibrant red color of the wood. This Marco Raposo bass bow has a black leather wrap with a delicate silver wire winding and is haired with high-quality white horse hair.
