German silver-mounted violin bow, Markneukirchen, 1940's

This fine quality silver mounted violin bow is a very versatile bow; a strong, powerful player that was crafted in the 1940's in Markneukirchen, the famous violin making town in Saxony. The octagonal stick was made of red-brown pernambuco wood and features remarkable strength, yet good agilty and tension. The balance-point is sensed well-centered and measured at 27.3 cm (incl. the adjuster), so the total weight of almost 60 g is perfectly distributed. The beautiful, classical quality and straightforward style is determined by the silver mounted ebony frog with a mother-of-pearle eye and a three-part adjuster. Minor traces of use indicate the good playing properties of the bow, that was a convincing partner for its former musician, featuring a warm, large, precise sound with great power. It was worked over in our workshop and is offered like all Corilon instruments and bows ready to play.
