Fine Markneukirchen violin bow, 1920ies
This fine violin bow was crafted in the 1920s in Markneukirchen, then the centre of German bow making where many ateliers produced world-class pieces. This work by an unknown master bears witness to the high quality of Markneukirchen bows, thanks to the persuasive power of its clear, matured and noble sound. The elastic 58.1 g octagonal stick of brown pernambuco is of medium strength and plays fluidly, it measures 74.2 cm and is of very good quality with an eye-catchingly well-designed head. Its balance point is at 27.8 2m and creates the feeling of inclining slightly more towards the tip. The bow was worked over thoroughly by our luthiers and is offered ready to play. Its features - an ebony frog, a mother-of-pearl eye and German silver mounting - simply and elegantly emphasize the valuable nature of this excellent bow that has a fine and noble, mature tone of good strength and clarity. It is a violin bow that playes fluidly and softly and is useful for players with that do not bow with high pressure.
