Fine German violin bow, Gustav Prager

Fine German violin bows by Gustav Prager rank among the best Markneukirchen violin bows from the early 20th century and have gained great popularity at the time. This fine Gustav Prager violin bow from the 1930's bears the original stamp by Gustav Prager Prager on shaft. The strong, octagonal stick of this 73.9 cm violin bow is made of fine quality pernambuco wood. The typical ebony frog is sterling-silver mounted with a Parisian and a silver adjuster with the typically short ebony ring. This fine violin bow is - at its weight of 62.3g - a surprisingly active player that has its balance point well centered, slightly shifted into the upper half of the stick, and measured at 26.5 cm. This fine Gustav Prager violin bow produces a warm, large, rounded tone and complements clear or brilliant sounding violins.
