  1. He now has a safe treatment to darken the wood, then it is finished as usual. That said I like the light color as well. DLB
  2. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vachellia_erioloba this is your boy. DLB
  3. It feels just like Pernambuco. Bounces great. Gilles loves the stuff he is very enthusiastic about it. DLB
  4. It’s actually my second Nehr bow. I have an earlier version from about 1999. DLB
  5. The links on his web site show the other side of the frog too. He has been working on this concept for a long time. DLB
  6. https://www.gillesnehr.com/tete-beche https://www.gillesnehr.com/about Here are acouple of links :-)
  7. I thought you all would like to see the new Tete-beche viola bow I commissioned from Gilles Nehr. It just came today and it is pretty great. The frog and the tip are made of Titanium with 18k. Rose gold adjuster and hook. The stick is Giraffe Thorn Acacia wood. It feels just like a regular fine bow in your hand and it powers the viola extremely well. Don't kill me if the pictures don't work! DLB
  8. I don't know where you are located but there are som very fine bow restorers here on the board. I would caution you not to play with it or have the hair tight until a qualified person has seen it. It will lose value but it can be repaired in such a way as to play just as well as it did. DLB
  9. I can’t be sure as I don’t have it in my hands but I think it needs to be splined before it is re-haired. It seems to need a tip plate as well. DLB
  10. Bass with strange colorless (clear) varnish. DLB
  11. Almost anything can be repaired but I am pretty sure the repair would cost far more than the bow is worth. DLB
  12. https://t2-auctions.com/auctions/lot/?csid=2199224320&cpid=3626729472#cond Maybe Chinese? DLB
  13. This is exactly correct. I couldn’t come up with the right words. Well said. DLB
  14. Just a copy I'm afraid. I have held a real Stainer in my hands and I've seen a couple more. There are folks here that have seen many. I'm sure they will be by. DLB
  15. Lemuel always takes good care of me. He is my source for Otto Temple fittings. He is very nice and it's always a pleasure to deal with him. And its in the land of the Maple Leaf. :-) https://www.violins.ca DLB
