Pernambuco wood.

Dörfler Bows have a strong impact on the sound, purity, strength and beauty of the tone. A Dörfler Bow brings forth the best in every play. It is just magic when the musician skilfully plays a string using a Bow. The sound effect and smooth transitions are simply fascinating right through all levels of the tone.

Exceptional sound quality and a unique design are the trade mark of the Dörfler bows. In 2010, we optimized the design of the violin and cello bows. For example, we changed the curvature at the back of the violin head. This resulted in a new, very harmonic overall appearance of the brazil bow and the pernambuco bow. The violin head and the cello head now present themselves in a sleeker, more elegant and therefore more stylish design.

The high-quality and sonorous master bows made by Dörfler are known and recognized all over the world. In 2013, Dörfler won two prestigious awards at the China International Violin Making and Bow Making Competition (CIVMC) in Beijing. Dörfler master builder Günther Spätling received the gold medal in the cello bow making category, and the silver medal in the bass bow making category. The international jury of experts not only commended the handicraft work, quality and design of the individual bows. Professional musicians also tested the superb sound quality of the master bows. A significant acclaim for the family company from Bubenreuth in Germany!

Dorfler is committed to sustainability of used resources. We are particularly dedicated to support reforestation projects of pernambuco trees, which come from northern and central-east Brazil.

Since 2007, this rare type of tree is an internationally protected species. Exporting pernambuco wood is therefore a complicated task requiring detailed consideration. Dorfler is a member and supporter of the I.P.C.I. Organisation, which is committed to the sustainability and reforestation of this precious type of tree.

Pernambo is a very slow-growing wood. Trees from reforestation projects are therefore unlikely to be available for bow making in the near future. Fortunately, Dorfler Bogen has in its reserve at least 30-year-old stocks of wood.
