Characteristics of a Dörfler nickel silver violin bow

First and foremost, the Pernambuco sticks on WE Dörfler labelled bows were naturally seasoned for at least 30 years. Each of them was carved by hand, on a round plane instead of an octagonal one.

The three-part button has an abalone slide at the end. As for the ebony frog, it is full-lined and also features a beautiful abalone slide.

The head plate is made of bone, and its right angle profile is very sober.

Moreover, the wrapping(winding, ferule, button, lining) is made of nickel silver. This alloy looking like silver allows to keep a reasonable price for the quality of the instrument, whereas solid silver is only for higher quality models.


Wood choices!

As for the wood of the stick, you have the quite unusual opportunity to choose between the traditional Pernambucoand Snakewood. This alternative is mostly for aesthetics, but which wood suits you best?


Dörfler nickel silver violin bows

For four generations of passionate bow makers, the Dörfler family has been working for the sake of artistic and acoustic perfection before anything else. Their story began in 1947, when Egidius Dörfler had the artistic instincts to set high standards. Thanks to his choices, the company progressed on its quest of perfection. Wolfgang E. Dörfler then took over and passed over to the next generation – Roland and Andreas.

The most prestigious bows coming out of their workshops are labelled after the founder Egidius Dörfler. The other top-of-the-range sticks are under W.E. Dörfler’s name.

You can find a certain number of stars after the label. They specify the quality of the bow.
