K. Gerhard Penzel violin bow, silver, 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 fine silver mounted violin bow by Kurt Gerhard Penzel was made around 1960in Ostrach. Its octagonal stick of good strength and high tension is a strong, reactive player - it is made of red brown pernambuco wood and bears the original K. Gerhard Penzel stamp on shaft above the frog. The ebony frog is silver mounted with a Parisian eye. This fine K. Gerhard Penzel violin bow has a sensed balance-point is well-centered slightly shifted towards the tip, measured at 25.8 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.
