About Alecio ReisAlecio Reis is one of a number of excellent Brazilian archetiers making today. He is based in the UK and his bows can be found in violin shops across the country, as well as in the hands of many players.
About the bowThe bow weighs 63 grams and the mounts are of silver and ebony. It is made of good quality pernambuco. The bow looks exceedingly glamorous thanks to the attractive mother of pearl shield on the frog and inlay on the button.
