Old German lightweight violin bow, soft stick - warm, mellow tone

This soft, lightweight violin bow that produces a warm, resonant sound was crafted in the 1920's presumably in Germany. The round stick is a soft player, i.e. it does not take too much pressure, the stick that has a tiny knothole in the upper half is made of light brown pernambuco wood that has a beautiful structure. The bow has a total length of 74.2 cm, including the adjuster. The balance-point of the bow that is measured at 25.5 cm feels perfectly centered, the bow feels lightweight and easy in the hand at a weight of 55.2 g. Its nickel mounted ebony frog is decorated with a Pearl eye and a three-part adjuster; its nice optical appearance corresponds to the good musical properties, that are indicated by some traces of use on the stick above the frog. The bow was worked over completely in our atelier, it is offered ready to play. This soft, lightweight bow produces a warm, somewhat mellow tone and would well complement a clear, sharp sounding violin.
