The Dorfler Viola Bow D18A is known as one of the finest handmade German bows. This special model comes from the G. Werner series and is made from the finest quality pernambuco stick. An octagonal stick bow, featuring a fine ebony frog with split heel plate, trimmed slide, parisian eye, three part button and metal blanc winding. 

The Dorfler workshop is best known for its high quality of standards, artistic intuition and perfection. This reputation was made from the work of Egidius Dörfler and for this reason the master bows are named after him. The bows carry such quality of sound, purity, strength and polish of tone.

For the most demanding, high-level musicians. A top of the range pernambuco stick, stored and dried impeccably for 30 years. 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 stringed instrument can only be achieved when both components fully harmonise.
