"Vincent Pasquier" model

CBF-34-VP

1300 €

This model was developed in collaboration with the double-bass player Vincent Pasquier who explains:


"By designing the frog slightly higher than the traditional French style of bow and slightly lower that the German style offers different possibilities with regard to camber and flexibility giving a unique result : string and attack flexibility
The ergonomic shape of the frog gives more space for the fingers to grasp the stick. A second finger can be placed on the frog giving better sensations over a larger surface.
                                                                  Flexibility, attack and great precision »

"For a long time, I tried to imagine how to offer young students the possibility of playing the double bass with a perfect, affordable bow. Likewise, I was looking, not only for an effective bow that would allow me to play my entire artistic repertoire, but also a bow that was modern in its conception, in its technology as well as the choice of the materials used”.

Vincent Pasquier, Contrebasse Solo at the Orchestra of Paris (ODP)
