Alfred Joseph Lamy stands slightly in the shadow of his teacher and mentor FN Voirin, but I prefer his work. It’s not quite as clinical, and yet it retains the elegance and finesse which characterize these particular makers. Lamy’s cello bows are particularly fine, with the most beautiful elongated head shape. This is a lovely example in very good condition – deep red round section pernambuco stick, silver and ebony mounts with a plain eye and 3-part adjuster. There’s a small and very neat insert to the bottom of the head on the audience side and some minor wear to the back edge of the frog also on the audience side, otherwise no issues to report.
