Considered to be the last of the classic French masters, Bernard Ouchard studied under his father Emile A. Ouchard before embarking on an illustrious career with Pierre Vidoudez in Geneva. His double bows are sought after by top bassists around the world, and for good reason. Like most of his bows, this example has an octagonal stick made from the finest materials and the frog is silver mounted with a Parisian eye and plain button. This bow weighs 131 grams and measures 69.4cm including the button. Stamped ‘VIDOUDEZ, GENEVE’ both sides of the stick.
