  1. German or English bow?

    Hi, guys. I've uploaded some pics on the other forum but haven't got any replies. I thought the bow could be a copy of an English bow like Tubbs or Hills, but it more likes German to me. The bow is engraved-gold mounted and the frog seems to have rusted brass screws. Though, the shape of head is similar to Tubbs. How do you think??
  2. Thank you. Bows are personal, so I should try on my own.
  3. You are right... Buying a bow without commisioning is highly risky....
  4. Thank you for the comment. amberviolins.com has many violins... it looks good!
  5. Recently, I achieved this bow which looks English. The bow is gold-mounted and the gold parts are engraved. There is no stamp on a stick, and I didn't check below the wrapping. The head is quite similar to that of James Tubbs, in my opinion. Any comments are welcome. Thanks.
  6. Hello, I am looking for a bow from Tarisio auction. My budget is maximum $6000 (including premium), and it seems that there are some fine bows within the price range in this auction. The problem is I am not in the US, so commissioning is impossible. It would be much appreciated if someone shares his/her opinion, who commissioned bows at Tarisio New York. (Especially Lot54(Morizot), Lot81(Martin), Lot89(Thomassin)) Any recommendation is also welcome Thanks.
