Fine quality Markneukirchen violin bow - frog
Fine quality Markneukirchen violin bow - head

Markneukirchen violin bow, sophisticated sound, a lightweight player

This good German violin bow was made in Markneukirchen around 1920. The elastic, round stick is of good tension, made of fine quality red-brown pernambuco wood. The stick is of medium strength and plays fluidly - it is therefore not suitable for players who play with high pressure - this bow fits well to violins with sharp, clear tones. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with pearl eye and slide. The weight is 54.8 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 26,8 cm from the frog end (adjuster length included). This bow is in perfect and immediate playing condition. It is a medium to soft player working well with brilliant or sharp sounding violins and produces a warm, sophisticated, beautiful sound of good volume and roundness.
