  1. I’m looking at a few bows on eBay, trying to upgrade from my very basic Chinese brazilwood bow to something a bit better. Do any of these look worth a try? Any tips on what to look for in photos would be much appreciated. Thanks everyone
  2. Hey guys, First time poster here and while not new to music, rather new to fiddle. I recently purchased this bow and like the way it plays. It is about 64g and helps me a draw a phat, deep sound from my instrument. The person I bought it from told me it was German circa 1910 +/- a few years. I bought it as an unstamped bow. He wasn’t sure if it was brasilwood or pernambuco. However, upon closer inspection I saw the very faint remnants of a stamp. But I can’t make it out. So two questions, based on the pictures below, can anyone make out the stamp? And do you think this a pernambuco stick? Thanks for your help.
  3. Hi I’d like to know the wood used for this bow. Also is there any guideline for differentiating woods ?
  4. Hi gang! Long time reader but first time poster here. I'm looking to take on the project of making my first ever bow, and was wondering if anybody knows of an online source where I could get snakewood and pernambuco blanks for the job. Thanks for the help!
  5. Hello, I have several pieces of Pernambuco available for bows. I obtained these blanks while working for a tone wood dealer over 10 years ago. They were part of a bow maker’s estate and we were asked to help sell the wood he had stored for over 50 years. They have been stored in a climate controlled room for the last 10 years along with the rest of my tone wood that I use for my guitars. I purchased these when I thought I would go to school for bow making but that is not likely to happen and I would like them to be used. I am told because of their size and Lucchi number that they are optimum for Bass bows. Most have a very lovely dark color except 5.51 which is a paler orange. I have included their dimensions in inches below. The individual pieces are listed by their Lucchi number to help you match them with the attached photos. Lucchi Number Length Width Thickness Length CM Width CM Thickness CM 5.51 37 1 9/16 0.45 93.9 3.96 1.14 5.3 36 1 13/16 0.835 91.4 4.60 2.12 5.25 35.5 2 15/16 0.53 90.1 7.46 1.34 5.35 37 1 7/8 0.81 93.9 4.76 2.05 5.29 35 5/8 1 7/8 0.86 90 2/5 4.76 2.18 5.58 37 3/4 1 7/8 0.525 95 4/5 4.76 1.33 5.56 35.5 1 3/4 0.785 90.1 4.44 1.99 5.06 35.5 1 4/5 0.56 90.1 4.57 1.42 I estimate that there is enough material for 16 bows. Looking at current availability and pricing of Pernambuco I am pricing the lot (no individual sales) at $200 per potential bow blank which comes up to $3000 for all 8 pieces OBO. I hope this email is not an intrusion but I am writing several bow makers that I found on a list on a discussion board. If this is an unwanted email please rest assured that I will not send any follow up emails unless directly requested. If you are not interested but know someone who might be please feel free to forward this message. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or would like any more information. I will email the pictures upon request. Thank you and I appreciate your time, Andrew McSpadden amcspadden@comcast.net
  6. I started to comment the "Good quality violin pernambucco bow" thread, as a fo;;ow-up to Ben's posts, but I thought I would rather start a new topic instead of my questions hi-jacking that discussion. I am not very good player (in my my judgement), but I do play daily (mostly) and take weekly lessons. I would say my best qualities are that I enjoy playing and I'm improving. However, bows are a bit of a mystery to me. I have played multiple bows on the same violin, and multiple violins on the same bow. I know bows make a difference in how one plays and the sound that is produced when paired with a particular violin and player. But I don't know what makes a good bow. Are there balance, weight, flexibility parameters that are considered acceptable? What are the qualities of bow wood that distinguish them from kindling, good, and great bow wood? Is there an old vs. new issue because of the availability of higher quality wood in the past? That's probably enough questions for now. Thanks, Jim
  7. Does anyone have recent experience regarding pernambuco and acquiring CITES certificates? Your comments about the process would be most appreciated. Thanks very much.
