This fine French style double bass bow was made by Kim Grácio, member of the famous Portuguese guitar making family, in 1973. Pernambuco and silver mounted, this beautiful bow has been well played and well cared for (one owner only!) over the course of its life. Recently cleaned, polished and rehaired with light silver hair, this fine bow is fairly light, coupled with a larger barrel and tip, it is well balanced with a quick response and ease in playability.
