Bass frog Chapelle
Eric Chapelle®, the bass bow frog as well as the fitting bow, Carbow up & down® were developed in cooperation with Eric Chapelle, the bass player of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte Carlo and Olivier Philippot, bowmaker of carbon bows and founder of the French enterprise, LNM Carbow. Due to the frog the bass player can use both the French and the German technique. So changing bows is not necessary any longer. This most ergonomic frog allows the musician to play in a more relaxed way. For further information about LNM Carbow and Carbow Up & Down® visit: www.carbow.com
The finished bow frogs are completely polished. The mortise is milled. Buttons and wedges are included. The bow frog is manufactured at our workshop in Röttenbach, Germany. The bow frog has the following features: Nickel silver mountings, carefully selected and well-seasoned ebony, MOP inlays, half-lined, one-part button, steel screw with inch thread, brass eyelet.


We are happy to help you design a bow frog and a button according to your specifications. Our craftmanship, the new technologies and the big variety of precious metals offer you a nearly unlimited choice for individual design.
