Silver mounted violin bow, Markneukirchen, Mathias Thomä

This strong, silver mounted violin bow was made by Mathias Thomä in Markneukirchen in the mid 20th century. It is a strong sounding violin bow is able to add volume, warmth and clarity to the sound of the violin it is played with. This Mathias Thomä violin bow featurs an octagonal stick made of red-brown premium pernambuco wood equipped with a silver mounted ebony frog with Parisian eye. The stick bears the original "Mathias Thomä **" stamp, the stars indicating the higher quality of the bow. The slide is made of white-greenish shimmering Pearl, quiet accurately let into the hard ebony wood. The felt balance-point is almost centered, slightly inclined towards the hand and the bow feels well balanced in the hand, playing strong and agile, producing a warm, voluminous, clear sound. The measured balance-point of the 74.3 cm bow is at 26.7 cm from the frog end. The stick shows signs from playing but has no damage. A strong, versatile bow that deserves our special recommendation.
