François Xavier Tourte Violin Bow, Paris circa 1810

Price on application

François Xavier Tourte Violin Bow
FX Tourte is the “ne plus ultra” of bow-making. Like Stradivari and the violin, he created the modern bow, and his achievements have never been surpassed in any significant way. Here we have a very fine example, beautifully preserved, and with superb playing qualities. There are some minor condition issues, and for a Tourte it’s almost affordable!
