Silver mounted viola bow, W. R. Wild

This silver mounted viola bow is a quality piece with the brand mark "W. R. Wild" that was crafted approx. 1980 for the renowned Mittenwald GEWA company and bears the original brand above the frog. The viola bow features a total length of 75.4 cm and a total weight of 69.8 g, with its balance-point centered, measured at 26.8 cm including the length of the adjuster. The round stick was made of good quality pernambuco wood; it features a noteworthy distribution of diameter that allows powerful yet fluid play and a precise tone. The silver mounted ebony frog is decorated with a white mother-of-pearle eye, a classical and tasteful setup. With some minor traces of use this silver viola bow is perfectly preserved. We offer it ready to play after a rehair and general work-over by our luthiers.
