Viola bow stemped P.R. Leblanc

This viola bow in the French style stamped P.R. Leblanc is the quality work of an unknown German bow making workshop and features with its total weight of only 65.2 g very comfortable playing properties. It was made approx. 1950 of beautiful light-brown pernambuco wood and was set up with a nickel mounted ebony frog that bears a mother of pearl eye. This both noble and straightforward style is completed by the three-part adjuster and the tastefully crafted head. The weight of the bow (73,8 cm) is perfectly balanced, with a sensed balance-point near the middle slightly towards the head that is measured at 29 cm – an excellently suitable piece for virtuosic playing. The strong, round stick features good elasticity and produces a fluid sound, with a bright character that is highly recommendable.
