Traditional and stately, the Heritage commands its presence as a patriarchal bow. With classic appearance and pull, it rests comfortably in the company of W.E. Hill. Its restrained, formal presentation belies the richness of its tone, and though cosmetically unornamented, it delights the ear with a velvety warmth and depth. Like a fine merlot, the understated, versatile profile blends with any music and rests as a comfortable choice.
Evoking the luxury and sophistication of the Art Deco movement, the Tuxedo weds modernist style with finesse and richness. Its subtle, sleek geometry reflect its refined and poised tonal palate. It serves the player by catering to technique and expression with tranquil dexterity in the hand. Though not overtly opulent, the bow plays with dignity and finish suggestive of the inimitable Jeeves.
As with the happiest unions, the Embrasse is neither submissive nor dominant, but complies and leads in complete synergy with its artist. While fulfilling the musician’s every expression, its tone and touch suggest new ideas to the player, nurturing a deeply intimate connection. Enticing color and shape seduces the eye, and as it draws across the string, the alluring sensitivity in the hand echoes in the contours of its sound. This bow recalls the bewitching 1934 Oscar winning song “The Continental”: “It’s something daring…a way of dancing that’s really ‘entre nous’.”
Daring, dashing, contemporary. The Aero pulls like a greyhound across the string, springing powerfully into action at a light touch of the hand. With clarity and liveliness, the bow drives itself and requires only gentle guidance and control to speak. The dynamic energy radiates a vivid tone that showcases dramatic style over demure restraint.
