smart bow

24.08.2016
I am no bow expert, and have only just switched to German style from French, for reasons of less shoulder tension. I chose this model as I figure the more I can afford, the more room for my improvement without limitations from the bow. Of course this is not really expensive for a bow, but then I'm only amateur.

The bow looks very elegant, and seems to be well crafted. The stick is straight, the frog comfortable and well-aligned, and the hair is good after a liberal first rosin.

It is stamped with the name G. Werner, I am not sure of the relevance of this to the Dorfler company.

Anyway, after rosining up, the bow seems to be playable and the sound is musical, I feel that my skill is more a limiting factor than the bow, so that's positive.

Happy to continue my learning the German bow with this.

Excellent wood bow with a very good price / performance ratio

Dantschge, 03.01.2014
I have ordered the Dörfler D10 as a reserve and travel agent, since I already have 20 years, an excellent, older master bow. I chose the villager D10, because it has all the features and features that a double bass bow should have in my opinion (ebony frog with gusset and Parisian eye, silver wire wound, a light, octagonal precious wood (here Massaranduba) pole and real horsehairs).

The Dörfler D10 double bass bow is processed really well and is very comfortable in the hand. My master bow, with which I've played so far, is only 15g lighter and maybe a bit more balanced than the D10 villager, but after a few minutes of play with the Dörfler D10, this is no longer noticeable, as it is quite balanced in the hand ,

The shape and size of the frog is even more pleasant at the first contact than that of my master bow and provides absolute safety in holding. In direct comparison with my master bow, the response to the e-string of my acoustic double bass is slightly weaker, but after a certain period of getting used to it will probably balance out. On my EUB the villager D10 plays even better than my master bow. All five strings of the EUB are very responsive and make a soulful and dynamic game possible.

In any case, the Dörfler D10 is a lot more soulful and dynamic (especially quieter) to play, than most carbon bows (also in this price range and above), which I have tried so far. That's why I really want to recommend the D10 to beginners as well, to give them a dynamic game right from the start, which is much harder to achieve with carbon arcs. And I did not even get to see a carbon bow with an octagonal rod.

I am very satisfied and can highly recommend the D10 villager, with its excellent value for money, to all serious double bass players, whether they are beginners or experienced.
