EgidiusDörfler made the master workshop to what it is today by means of perfection, extremely high quality standards and artistic intuition. It is for this reason that the Master Bows bear his name.
Dörfler Master Bows exercise a maximum of influence to sound, purity, strength and polish of the tone. It is only the Dörfler Master Bow which enables the art of playing to be put into its true light: Through the contact with this bow, the string instrument player can influence the process of the first stroke of the bow in so many ways, that tonal effect and transitions through all levels of the tonal strength produce the desired effects.
It is no wonder that more and more musicians select a Dörfler Master Bow. The appreciation of the Dörfler Master Bow’s characteristics is certainly the most important reason for this.
At the second China International Violin Making and Bow Making Competition in Bejing in 2013, Dörfler’s master bow maker GüntherSpätling was the only German participant to win two of the much sought-after medals. In the newly established category of bow making, Dörfler won both gold in the cello and silver in the double bass bow categories. Hundreds of bows were anonymously sent in from across the globe, and had to meet the high demands of a jury of internationally renowned specialists. The jurors included Bernard Millant (France), Yung Chin (USA), and Peter Oxley (England) – three of the world’s most outstanding experts in bow and violin making, appraisal, and science. In the first round, the experts evaluated the craftsmanship, material quality, and design of the individual bows. Both Dörfler’s cello and double bass bows proved particularly impressive in that phase, thereby making it into the final round. It was there that GüntherSpätling’s master bows demonstrated their exceptional sound quality. Played by professional musicians and judged by the complete jury, Dörfler proved the only German bow maker to prevail. At the end of September, the winners of the biennial competition were finally announced. “It makes us very proud to have held our ground at an international competition in China as a German family business from a small place like Bubenreuth,” commented Managing Director Andreas Dörfler. “We may be called Dörfler [villagers – ed. note], but we are appreciated and recognized far beyond our village for our top-quality, fine-sounding master bows.”Contact Us Back
