3/4 - German 3/4 violin bow, approx. 1950

This 3/4-sized violin bow offers good opportunities to learn proper bowing techniques due to its light weight and ideal weight distribution - and great joy in daily practising. The 3/4 violin bow was crafted in an unknown workshop in the traditional violin making town of Markneukirchen in Saxony. It is an excellent example of good craftsmanship, that is rarely found at small-sized bows for stringed instruments. The elastic, round stick was made of fine, red-brown colored pernambuco wood; the head is a remarkably detailed and tasteful work. The bow is a soft plaer and procuces a warm, bright, mellow tone.The blank ebony frog is nickel mounted and decorated with a one adjuster. The balance-point of the bow is sensed well-centered. The expert luthiers in our atelier completely worked over this bow that is now offered ready to play. This bow complements well sharp and clear, brilliant sounding violins and does not accept too much pressure at play.
