Pernambuco Upright Bass Bows
Like our very own Brazilwood upright bass bows, we now offer the
very same models in pernambuco wood. Only the best and finest bows are made from
pernambuco and we personally hand
pick and buy our raw bow blank stock from Canadian bass bow maker,
Mr. Reid Hudson. The
quality, workmanship and playability of our pernambuco bass bows is
unrivaled in this price range. While the materials make the bows more expensive,
they compare to bows that are much higher in price (looking in the
$1,500-2,500 range). ** Special note for all of our pernambuco bows
here: Call us and tell us more about what bass you play,
strings and what your goals are with the bow. That can make a
real difference in which bow we choose for you! Email us
here. Price of any pernambuco bow here $750.
Customers can also take advantage of our special packaged deal when
buying one of our pernambuco bows.

The Charles Peccatte, French style, pernumbuco

frog and a beautiful curly grain.
