Good 1940's violin bow from Markneukirchen - frog

Good 1940's violin bow from Markneukirchen, warm, mellow tone

This good German violin bow, a soft player, was made in the 1940s in Markneukirchen by an unknown, talented bowmaker. The high quality warm, mellow, somewhat sweetish tone and quality of workmanship are superior to most bows of this class. The balance point is measured at 26.2 cm of 74.1 cm total length and feels slightly shifted towards the upper half. The octagonal stick is elastic and soft at play, the stick is made of redbrown pernambuco wood, the ebony frog is nickel mounted, with a mother of pearle eye and a rose-white shimmering slide. A rather soft bow that does not allow much pressure at play and that produces a warm, mellow sound full of character. This bow complements clear, brilliant, somehwat sharp sounding violins.
