The Finkel workshop spans 4 generations of bowmaking tradition since its establishment in 1868.
The Lefin is the second bow in this workshop's range. It features a fully sterling silver mounted frog and selected Pernambuco stick with silver headface. A bow benefiting from the long experience of this family firm and ideal for College music students and young professional players.
Unless stated otherwise all our bows are supplied with a starter coat of premium quality William Salchow rosin. Good, fresh rosin is essential to obtain the best performance from any bow.

A lovely bow.
Pros: Well balanced and responsive. Made techniques such as double-stopping and sautille feel easy. Drew a full sound from my viola.
Other: I bought this one! Bows are a personal decision and should always be tried in comparison with others.
Singing clear tone.
Pros: Great delivery (to Australia) experience. The sound of the bow is a singing tone, reduced noise content, medium spiccato/weight response. Immaculate mechanism and hair quality. Pitch content is very clear, and this forces player to higher level of care with intonation
Cons: The bow is slightly short - hair length 15mm less than my other bow. Wasnt expecting this.
