This exquisite bow is a masterpiece from the esteemed workshop of Egidius Dörfler, a name synonymous with quality and precision in the world of string instruments.

Constructed from premium Pernambuco wood, the DO14 is both strong and flexible, offering a balance that is sought after by discerning violinists.

At the frog, the DO14 features a sophisticated mechanism for smooth and reliable tension adjustment. The frog itself is made from ebony, a dense hardwood valued for its durability and beauty. It is adorned with mother-of-pearl inlays and a silver winding, adding a touch of elegance to the bow's design. The grip offers a comfortable and secure hold for extended playing sessions.

The hair of the DO14 Dorfler Violin Bow is of the highest quality, selected for its uniformity and elasticity.
