This fine Hermann Richard Pfretzschner violin bow, a personal work after Tourte, leaves no doubt as to the epochal lifetime achievement of this bow maker. After his three years in Paris under Jean-Baptiste VuillaumeHermann Richard Pfretzschner returned to his home in Saxony in 1875 and set new standards, turning his father’s atelier into a wide-open door for contemporary French style. In keeping with his earlier works, this unstamped violin bow after Tourte is in good weight and its craftsmanship demonstrates a delicate elegance and refinement, especially at the head. The outstanding weight distribution and centrally positioned balance point, slightly inclined to the upper half of the stick, give musicians a wide range of options in their performance and musical expression. The solid round stick was crafted of premium dark-brown pernambuco, and the blank ebony frog is mounted in genuine silver. This fine and highly recommended H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow was meticulously set up by the specialists at our atelier for restoration, and it is now ready to play. It produces a full, warm, sophisticated sound with compelling size and precision.
