Marco Raposo - German Style Double Bass Bow - # 2596

Looking for a pro-quality bow for under 1K?

Well look no further than this bow made by the up-and-coming young Brazilian maker - Marco Raposo. He really is the "new-kid" on the block as far as we are concerned - for these well made bows are able to "do-the-biz" for much less than half the cost of some of the more - shall we say - "established" modern bow makers.

Tell me a bit about Marco Raposo.

Pernambuco - the main raw material of bow making grows high up in the mountains of Brazil's Atlantic Forest. It is here that Marco Raposo and his highly trained craftsmen work together with great care and attention to detail to produce this artist-quality bows. In addition to the thought, planning and development that goes into each stage of the bow making process Marco shows great concern for the environment and in particular the protection of the Pernambuco tree - the rare wood species so critical to the future of music. In this respect Marco has initiated several reforestation programs aimed at developing a sustainable relationship with the tree and other native species of the tropical forest. Thank you Marco - your efforts are exemplary.
