1930's violin bow from Markneukirchen, warm, mellow tone

This very good German violin bow, a fluid, active player, was made in the 1930's 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 25.8 cm of 74.1 cm total length and feels slightly shifted towards the upper half. The octagonal stick is elastic with good tension and of medium strength at play, the stick is made of fine quality dark red-brown pernambuco wood, the ebony frog is nickel mounted, with a mother of pearle eye and a yellow shimmering slide. A beautifully playing bow that does not allow high but allows normal pressure at play and that produces a warm, mellow sound full of character. This bow complements clear, brilliant, somehwat sharp sounding violins. A small repair to the back of the head which has no impact on stability allows us to offer the bow at a competitive price.
