Charles Nicholas Bazin, c 1905
A fine Tubbs copy bow. This model was considered to be a top-range bow for Bazin, who also modeled bows after Lupot, Dodd, and Tourte (among others).
Gorgeous wood selection with excellent tonal capabilities and playability.
French bow expert Jean-Francois Raffin is set to release a reference book on C.N. Bazin and those influenced by him, due later this year.
Accompanied with a certificate of authenticity by Isaac Salchow.
Price range: $8k-$15k
