Description

The octagonal pernambuco stick is stamped “DODD” and is very typical of the style of James Dodd, the plain ebony frog is stamped “CORSBY”. George Corsby was a maker of limited ability who made a living as a musical instrument dealer and whose stamp can be found on bows of the more refined bow makers of the period. The frog has an old, stable repair where the top section has been replaced.

The bow draws out a powerful sound with excellent dynamic range. The sound is focussed and clear with precise projection and it’s comfortable and secure to hold at the frog. It weighs 80 gm.
