It is highly recommended to come for a visit together with your instrument, so that you can find out the bow which fits and works best for you and your bass!

Being a bassist my self I can present you all bows playing, so that you are able to judge their sound from distance as well.

Description

CD My Double Bass, Ödön Racz

 

 

 

The Sommerhoff precision oil-pencil made of aluminum and is the only precision-oil-dispenser for any kind of oil including alcali oil and any other kind of fluids.

The Sommerhoff precision oil-pencil dispenses finely dosed quantities dropwise. Even oils with very low viscosity cannot leak out after long terms of laying intermission. This oil pencil of highest production quality without compromises satisfies even the highest professional expectations.

 

Prices on request by Email - Please click here !

 

Especially recommended for the care of brass wind instruments but also for cleaning up resistent rosin spots on string instruments with orange oil.

The usage is very easy. You can fill in ca. 5 ml oil into the aluminium tank and dispensing the oil dropwise by pressing the button on top of the pencil.
