German violin bow by Carl Weimer

This recommendable German violin bow is an excellent fullsize violin bow of the Markneukirchen school made by Carl Weimer in the 1940ies. The stick is stamped Carl Weimer on shaft above the frog, we have no doubts on the correctness of this statement. The round stick is made of light brown pernambuco wood, the length is 74.7 cm. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with pearl eye and nicely shimmering pearl slide. The stick is of good strength and has a measured balance point is at 26,9 cm from the frog end, the felt balance point is well centered. The bow plays strong and active and is óffered in perfect undamaged condition, it has been restored with new hair, leather and silver lapping. Produces a good, bright, warm, round sound, less mellow.
