German Penzel violin bow, approx. 1960

The Penzels are a family of bow-makers with long tradition. Emil Max Penzel founded his workshop for artist violin bows in Erlbach near Markneukirchen, his descendants continue his work nowadays in Ostrach, South Germany. This good Penzel violin bow was made around 1960/1970 in Ostrach. Its octagonal stick of good strength is made of red brown pernambuco wood and bears the original M. Penzel stamp on shaft above the frog. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with a Pearl eye. This Penzel violin bow has a length of 74.5 cm, the felt balance-point is well-centered slightly shifted towards the frog, measured at 26.6 cm including the adjuster. This strong Penzel bow produces a warm, powerful, large sound that is precise and voluminous. It is despite clear signs from playing undamaged, professionally worked over ready to play and deserves our special recommendation.
