German violin bow, Johannes Adler - frog
German violin bow, Johannes Adler - head

Excellent old German violin bow, 1930's, Johannes Adler

This very good quality German violin bow is an excellent player, it was handcrafted in the 1930's in Markneukirchen for Johannes Adler. The octagonal stick of red-brown pernambuco wood is of medium strength, it plays very actively, and was set up with an attractive nickel mounted ebony frog with Parisian eye. The stick bears the Johannes Adler stamp on shaft. The sensed balance point of this bow is centered, very slightly inclined towards the frog, and measured at 27.0 cm of the total length of 74.3 cm. With its very well balanced total weight of 60.1 g this undamaged violin bow is easy to play and features a beautiful, strong and clear sound, bright, somewhat sweet and with good volume and resonance.
