Probably Paul Weidhaas, fine German violin bow

This sophisticated and perfectly balanced German violin bow is a masterpiece of aesthetic understatement. It was probably made by Markneukirchen bow maker Paul Weidhaas who did not mark this bow and the unornamented nickel-mounted ebony frog and the unpretentious capsule button are subdued yet high-quality fittings which only draw even more attention to the nature of the elegant work produced by this premium atelier. A closer look shows how delicately the head and the round stick were crafted from reddish-brown pernambuco. This work follows in the footsteps of the tradition established by Victor Fétique, who was an important source of inspiration to the young Paul Weidhaas as an employee and student. The influences of other famous ateliers – such as that of Georg Winterling in Hamburg, Max Möller in Amsterdam and Josef Vedral in Den Haag – helped Paul Weidhaas become one of the finest bow makers in his home of Saxony, where he established his own business in 1918 and remained until his death in 1962. The well-balanced weight distribution of the bow, which measures 74.5 cm and 60.5 g, makes it possible to play powerfully and actively. Its central balancing point is at 26.8 cm. The voluminous sound is radiant and clear, and this violin bow deserves our special recommendation. It has been maintained in nearly new condition and now made ready to play.
