    Is this a norris bow?

    Oh dear, from your chart the silver tip with ebony lining seems to date a decade or so after Norris died in 1818! So it looks like it is not genuine?

    Is this a norris bow?

    Thank you Jacob I have just spent some time perusing your article and (Frog aside) it does seem to fit the criteria so far eg the 45 degree chamfer - but still looking and comparing

    Is this a norris bow?

    Recently included with a violin I bought, was this bow. It has 'norris' stamped on the stick. The tip is metal (silver?) and I presume that the frog is an addition. I am no bow expert so would appreciate comments and suggestions as to retail value and whether I should try and match the frog for authenticity (Where would one get such a thing?)

    Cello bow on Tarisio

    To set that price on the bow they must have some inkling as to provenance?

    Cello bow on Tarisio

    Light as in weight, or light in the suggested price?
  8. Just a question - how can an unnamed Cello bow (lot 12) with no attribution, be worth £3000 to £5000? https://tarisio.com/auctions/auction/lot/?csid=2198847488&cpid=3545939968&filter_key=

    New Cello strings

    Just to endorse what Foxmitchel said. Why buy eBay when any good online string shop offer the same price, next day delivery and qualified advice simply by lifting the phone? Plus the very real risk of fake strings! Re the above thread, we always start with Spirocore C and G with Larsen D and A and then take it from there depending on how the Cello sounds. One very dull new English Cello came alive with Eva Pirazzi

    Violin ID (again)

    I have a new Chinese violin almost identical in colour and design - they come unlabelled in various qualities, and the dealer puts his on label in! They are very often good value for money
  12. Jeff Thanks for the essay on values and prices - I found that enlightening. But what does BB mean please?

    Violin ID please

    Thank you all - and I didn't even get a rap over the knuckles from VdA! Actually the workmanship isn't that perfect so I would go with the latter comments That said would it as fully restored, value in at $1000?
