Marco Raposo French Style Double Bass Bow
Marco Raposo lives and works in Brazil where he and his team of highly trained craftsmen work together with great care and attention to detail to produce artist-quality bows. In addition to the thought, planning and development that goes into each stage of the bow making process, Raposo 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 Raposo has initiated several reforestation programs aimed at developing a sustainable relationship with the tree and other native species of the tropical forest.
We particularly like this Raposo bow because the stick is made from a good grade of pernambuco, the head is elegant, refined and well carved and the bow is well balanced and feel comfortable in the hand.
Best of all is the fact that the bow represents excellent value for money.
