Violin bow by Adolf C. Schuster

An ideal player's bow from the hands of the Markneukirchen master bow maker Adolf C. Schuster. As usual for Adolf C. Schuster's bows, this violin bow is extraordinary handy, easy and agile to play. The octagonal pernambuco wood stick is elastic and of excellent strength. The ebony frog is sterling silver mounted and ornated with Parisian eye and nacre slide. The slide is shimmering in colorful green and violet tones which is rather unconventional, most slides are cream white. The bow's head is elegantly shaped. Schusters original stamp is imprinted on the shaft above the frog and on the frog. The violin bow has a total length of 74,5 cm and weights only approximately 60 g. Its felt balance-point is in the upper third of the stick, measured at 26.8 cm. Schusters bow is ready to play and produces a highly recommended bright, radiant sound.
