This is a very fine Lamy Fils in near pristine condition, stamped A Lamy A Paris. Lamy bows have always been popular with players, and this particular bow would be pretty hard to beat for sound or for technical quality. The stick is of round section red brown pernambuco, with silver and ebony mounts. The bow is an exceptional piece for a collector, and retains its original tinsel lapping and thumb leather. The condition is pretty much mint – so much so that I have hesitated to even buff up the silver! Yes it’s not cheap, but you will never see another Lamy in this kind of condition.
There’s very little to be said about this bow – it would be suitable for a soloist working at the highest level. Once you’ve used a bow like this there’s no going back!
Dimensions: Length 74.7cm, weight 58.5 grams (with tinsel lapping)
Certificate: Pierre Guillaume, Brussels 2014
