Markneukirchen violin bow, sophisticated sound, a soft player
This good German violin bow was made in Markneukirchen around 1920. The elastic, octagonal stick is made of fine quality light-brown pernambuco wood. The stick is of medium strength and plays softly and fluidly - it is therefore not suitable for players who play with much pressure. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with pearl eye and slide. The weight is 55.2 g the length 74,4 cm. The felt balance point is in the middle, slightly shifted towards the upper half of the stick. The balance point is measured at 26,1 cm from the frog end (adjuster length included). This bow is in perfect and immediate playing condition. It is a soft player working well with brilliant or sharp sounding violins and produces a warm, sophisticated, beautiful sound.
