Pernambuco Bow Blanks For Sale

Recommended Posts

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.

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,
