北口大輔 Daisuke KITAGUCHI



“I was surprised at the first impression of this bow.
The bow has a wide expressiveness and generous tone.
When I play it, I feel like playing an old great French maker’s bow!
The more using, the more its beautiful stick is getting closer to an genuine old master’s bow.
Thank you for the best encounter with this bow.”
