Silver mounted German viola bow, G. Rudi Steinel
The good silver mounted viola bow presented here features solid quality, comfortable playing properties and an unusually pleasant sound. It was made by G. Rudi Steinel in Germany in approximately 1980, it bears the makers stamp on shaft above the frog. Its weight distribution is strikingly good, with a balance point that feels broad and centrally positioned thanks to the octagonal stick of pernambuco, a silver-mounted frog with a three-piece button and a well crafted attractive head. The impressive Parisian eye on the frog is an ornament serves as a tribute to the great French bow making tradition. This strong and active G. Rudi Steinel viola bow is also ideal for sophisticated musicians and creates a pleasantly bright, warm, clear, strong sound. This viola bow is an "allrounder" and also well suitable for violas with a mellow, perhaps a bit unprecise sound.
