Fine and strong violin bow from Markneukirchen

This fine German violin bow was built in Markneukirchen, the famous violin making town in Saxony, in the 1930s-1940s. It is a fine piece with a strong octogonal stick made of premium quality, red-brown colored pernambuco wood. The silver mounted ebony frog bears a Parisian eye and is a fine example for the classical beauty of traditional Markneukirchen bows. The sensed balance-point of the bow is in the centered, slightly shifted to the upper half of the stick, measured at 26,2 cm of 74,4 cm total length including the adjuster. The bow features excellent playing properties with high elasticity and agility. This perfectly preserved bow is suitable for active playing and produces a large and clear sound with very radiant character, and is offered in excellent condition, ready to play.
