Lightweight German violin bow, silver mounted
This beautiful lightweight violin bow features a surprisingly large sound; it was built approx. 1950 in an unknown workshop in Markneukirchen. The octagonal stick is of good strength and elasticity, it was made of light brown pernambuco wood and is crafted with an excellently distributed diameter. The typical Markneukirchen head is full of character and demonstrates fine quality and skillful craftsmanship, just as the silver mounted, blank ebony frog. The percieved balance point of the bow is well-centered, slightly shifted towards the head, and is measured at 25.5 cm of the total length of 74.0 cm. The bow´s weight is only 54.9 g what makes it suitable for artisrtic playing. It features a powerful bright, warm sound and is offered ready to play.
