First and foremost, a Dörfler student violin bow allows you to play your first notes with a fine stick. Even though this bow is designed for students, I make sure to select the best sticks you can have for this price.

Characteristics of the Dörfler student violin bow

The stick of this bow is not made of the famous Pernambuco, but of woods called “Brazilwood”. Unlike what their name suggests, these species do not come from Brazil. However, they are still very close to Pernambuco. As such, the wooden student bows I offer have very similar technique characteristics to that of the sought-after Pernambuco, even if their colour and texture are different.

However, the stiffness and responsiveness of such sticks are not necessarily not as good as that of a Pernambuco stick. While they do not display the nice colour of the actual Brazilwood, they are more affordable.

The finish of these bows is absolutely fine. Indeed, they have an ebony frog with a mother of pearl ring and a mother of pearl cover. Likewise, all metal elements such as the ring, button and trim are in nickel silver. In other words, an alloy of nickel, copper and zinc that has the appearance of silver. If you look closely, you may notice that the stick is labelled Werner. This is the label Dörfler uses to identify the most affordable of his instruments.

Besides, they’re available in many different sizes, even for small violonists!

For a student bow, this model has the advantage of being well-made. The materials are simple, with no embellishment, they get down to basics. That’s why they are affordable and have great quality for a reasonable price. Not to mention that I choose these sticks personally and only keep the best.

Besides, they are available in every size.
