Markneukirchen Violin bow, circa 1920 - frog
Excellent and highly recommendable Markneukirchen violin bow, approx. 1920

Excellent and highly recommendable Markneukirchen violin bow, approx. 1920

This highly recommendable German violin bow is a very good Markneukirchen piece of work of quality, made in the 1920ies. The very active octagonal stick is made of light-brown pernambuco wood and is of goof strength with a centered balance point and a rare combination of stiffness and tension. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with a Parisian eye and golden-green shimmering pearl slide. Like all Corilon instruments and bows, this good Markneukirchen violin bow has been worked over and is offered with new hair, leather and silver winding. The length is 74.8 cm, the balance point is well centered and measured at 27.8 cm from the frog end. This violin bow feels very convenient in the hand and plays nicely, forgiving mistakes and produces a powerful, warm, rounded sound.
