James Tubbs Violin Bow, London circa 1910

James Tubbs Violin Bow, London circa 1910We always try to keep a couple of James Tubbs violin bows on the website – perhaps that gives a clue as to how I rate him as a maker! His model is individual and very distinctive with long buttons, long rounded ferrules, the head broad and elegant, always with a silver face. This example from Tubbs’ later period is typical – very dark brown pernambuco, silver and ebony mounts, the plain ebony frog with its square heel characteristic of the period. The stick is in great condition – there’s a bit of scratching to the player side of the frog and handle, and the pearl slide is a replacement, otherwise no issues.

This is the sort of Tubbs that’s so popular with orchestral professionals. The sound is warm yet refined, and the stick is very subtle, eminently controllable all the way down to pianissimo. There’s enough weight to allow the bow to sit on the string and produce a solid tone, and you can push it when you need to. A very nice example at a very fair price …

Dimensions: Length 74.8cm, weight 61 grams
