H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow Markneukirchen

Fine H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow, silver mounted - masterpiece

This fine and highly recommendable H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow is a personal piece made by Hermann Richard Pfretzschner, who studied with E. Sartory in Paris; it is a fine personal masterpiece by Hermann Richard closely following the concepts of the Sartory model. It bears the original H. R. Pfretzschner brandstamps on shaft and frog. Having a weight of 61.8 g this bow is in good weight. The octagonal stick is of fluid strength, tensed and elastic, a delicate, active player - the stick is made of remarkably beautiful light brown pernambuco wood. The ebony frog is silver mounted with Pearl eye and white shimmering pearl slide. The length is 74,3 cm, the bow has it's balance point centered, slightly inclined towards the head, measured at 27.7 cm from the frog end. This fine masterpiece by Hermann Richard Pfretzschner has an invisible repair to the stick, a surface chip that happened during the straightening, and is therefore offered at less than 50% of the normal price. It is in immediate playing condition, and like all Corilon violin bows worked over and ready to play. It plays actively and produces a very convincing bright, powerful tone - a bargain for those seeking a top quality bow with finest bow mastery features.
