Brian Alvey Double Bass Bow - #2530

For those of you seeking a bow of merit that is thoroughly steeped in the traditions of that great 20th century English firm of violin and bow makers - that of W.E. Hill and Sons - then look no further than this superb bow made by Brian Alvey who joined Hills in 1966, leaving the firm in 1978 at about the time when the Hill workshops in Hanwell were closed and the firm in its entirety was transferred to Great Missenden.

Description

The choice of wood is superb, the stick elegant and refined, the head majestic in the style of Tourte, a style impressed on each and every craftsman of the Hill firm. This bow does indeed continue well the high standards of bow making set by the firm of W.E. Hill & Sons.

Having been kept as an investment piece in a bow box since new we estimate that this bow may well be some twenty years in age. Over the course of this period the stick has developed a beautiful deep-dark red patina to the pernambuco and the silver has developed a glorious tarnished-appearance.

Superb looks, superb playing qualities and offered in as-new condition. This surely has to be a great investment opportunity. All that we may change on the bow is the original hair which has discoloured to a strange yellow-shade of white. I'm sure you won't mind.
