Markneukirchen violin bow, probably Dürrschmidt
This excellent German violin bow after J. B. Vuillaume was probably made by Dürrschmidt in Markneukirchen. It is an early 20th century silver mounted piece that features a strong, round stick with excellent stiffness, made of finest quality pernambuco wood. The long-nosed head is especially elegant and neatly finished. The silver mounted ebony frog is decorated with a Pearl eye and a white-rose shimmering pearl slide. This violin bow feels surprisingly lightweight in the hand and has its balance point well-centered at play, measured at 26.5 cm of this 74.1 cm stick. This highly recommendable, strong and active violin bow produces a powerful, bright, radiant sound rich in overtones.
