Egidius Dorfler Octagonal or Round Pernambuco Violin Bow
For more than three generations the Dörfler workshop has produced bows
of superior craftsmanship and playability. The workshop, as it is known today, was started by Egidius Dorfler. As an homage, each master bow is stamped *Egidius Dorfler***. Bows that carry this stamp are made from the best pernambuco from stocks that the Dorfler family has amassed over decades. In keeping with the Dorfler workshop's attention to detail, each stick is expertly crafted and cambered to give the greatest possible
elasticity coupled with its ideal weight and balance.
There are several models to choose from. Depending on which model you choose, the stick may be either round or octagonal. All of the bows have ebony frogs that have been mounted in silver and have a silver wire winding and leather grip. The bows are all stamped
