Dorfler family Dorfler Bows History
For more than three generations Dorfler has been producing bows of superior craftsmanship and in the style of the great model "Tourte". Daniel Dorfler, founder of the company, set himself the task of bringing the German bow construction to the "Tourte" level of quality.
Egidius Dorfler 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. Dorfler master bows exercise a maximum of influence to sound, purity, strength and polish of the tone. It is only the Dorfler 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 Dorfler master bow. The appreciation of the Dorfler master bow's characteristics is certainly the most important reason for this.

Dorfler Bow bending Dorfler Bow bending Egidius Dorfler Master Bows
The Dorfler Master Bow is a hand made top quality product. Precious and exquisite materials guarantee a long life span. Pernambuco wood is used predominantly; the only wood of which the flexibility and tension constantly fulfil the high quality standards of the Dorfler Master Bow production. It is a prerequisite for the masterly art of giving the bow, through exact bending, the greatest possible tension at the ideal weight. The bow hair consists exclusively of natural white horse hair from selected stepe horses of Inner Asia. Hair which neither waves or becomes rotten. The elaborate mountings of mother of pearl and precious metals on the pore free ebony frog are valuable refinements, which lend the Dorfler Master Bows their relevant appearance and long lifetime.
