German Penzel violin bow, approx. 1950

The Penzels are a family of bow-makers with long tradition. Emil Max Penzel founded his workshop for artist violin bows in Erlbach near Markneukirchen, his descendants continue his work nowadays in Ostrach, South Germany. This good violin bow was made around 1950/1950 in Ostrach. Its octagonal stick of medium strength and high elasticity plays fluidly and forgiving, it is made of light brown pernambuco wood and bears the original Penzel stamp on shaft above the frog. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with a Parisian eye. This Penzel violin bow has a length of 74.5 cm, the felt balance-point is well-centered slightly shifted towards the frog, measured at 25.7 cm including the adjuster. This bow produces a warm, somewhat mellow, large sound is precise and voluminous. It is despite clear signs from playing undamaged ready to play and deserves our special recommendation.
