YES, very cool Pierre!  I like the fleur de lis, the cross, and the mop.

#3 and the bottom one #6 are my favorites.

The brown one is great but all are nice. Giving a variety of different frogs adds a whole new dimention to the FIDDLERMAN bow.

Thanks guys,

I have to negotiate the price with the manufacturer to see how much extra it would cost in the end.

Funny, I was thinking everyone would lean towards one of these frogs but it seems there are different favorites pretty evenly. Personally I like the brown one like Kevin.

When you wrote MOP (mother of pearl - for those who don't know) Fred, were you referring to the brown one or the 2nd from the top?

If it mean's anything,, what the frog look's like (and I personally like the brown), it's the weight that concern's me more that the frog.  facepalm

60-61 gram's is just too heavy for me, as you well know, FM.

I don't know what the second one is. The first one is close to the ankh. LOL

Fleur de lis of the existing designs, Perhaps something that represents each of the traditional schools of music or musical styles. I could see an Irish cross being popular maybe a Jug o Moonshine (old style jug with crescent moon on it) would be appro pro for certain styles. Too bad you cant just sell the frog to be switched out at will.

Finally found some time to do a video on this violin. Thought about "Sad Romance" because of all of you who have been working on it. It's thanks to all of you that I ever even heard this piece.exactly

Yeah.  Wow is that a beautiful instrument!   Let's see,  I was never good at math but...

 
                               1200/365 = $3.29. 
Starbucks Grande Mocha = $3.75 
       No mocha's for a year = a rough year.

Really glad you love it sunshineb :-)
It makes a tremendous difference compared to a bad bow. That is for sure.

Thanks StoneDog, nice to hear.
