Prix: £2000

This is an excellent bow by W.C. Retford for Hills. Retford was head of their bow department for nearly 50 years and has been described as probably the greatest bow craftsman of his time.

At 62.5 grams this one has plenty of weight and strength, but is also lively and flexible. It plays brilliantly and draws plenty of sound.

It has recently been restored and is in excellent playing condition.
There is a repair to the handle and the button is not original, which accounts for the low price for a Hill bow. Otherwise the stick is a beauty and in good shape.

One or two other bows and violins also available.
Based in north London.
Certification: This is a characteristic example, stamped H&S, and identified as by Retford by his signature single dot below the mortise.
