German violin bow, very good playing qualities
The good, new German violin bow presented here features solid quality, comfortable playing properties and an unusually pleasant sound. Its weight distribution is strikingly good, with a balance point that feels broad and centrally positioned thanks to the octagonal stick of pernambuco, a nickel silver-mounted frog with a three-piece button and a carefully crafted attractive head. The large mother-of-pearl eye on the frog is an ornament serves as a tribute to the great German Knopf family. This well executed piece is also ideal for sophisticated musicians and creates a pleasantly warm, bright and fluid sound.
