Comment: This is a most excellent workshop bow comparable to Seifert’s AB266 or the Ary AB210. It is usually more nimble than Seifert’s bow, smaller and lighter than Ary’s AB210F, and has a nice clear tone. All of Durrschmidt’s bows benefit from the shop’s good stores of generational wood. In addition, Frau Durrschmidt does much of the finish work and she has a good eye for all the small details, so we get bows that are meticulously haired and finished. Bravo. These bows are a truly great value.
