For highly demanding, high-level musicians. Top-of-the-range pernambuco stick, 30 years of impeccable storage and dried. Excellent elastomechanic qualities. Fine details such as the nickel-silver mounted slide and a three-piece button with eye make this bow a real jewel. A bow is for the musician as important as the instrument that he wants to bring to life. The sound quality of a string instrument can only be achieved when both components fully harmonize.

For Dörfler's pernambuco bows only selected woods are used, which have been perfectly stored and dried for appromimately 30 years. Thanks to its, despite great hardness and density, excellent elasto- mechanics this wood type is the first, or more even the only, choice for bow making of a high standard.
Pernambuco wood comes from northern and central east Brazil. The tree from which it is won is called Caesalpinia echinata, also known as Pau Brasil.
This rare tree species is listed under Cites 2* since June 2007, which means that the export is covered by far more effort than before. Dörfler is a member of the I.P.C.I. organisation, which takes care of the reforestation of this valuable tree species. However as the trees grow very slowly, it will take some time before they can be used for bow making.
