Excellent, simple French violin bow, approx. 1920

This simple but highly recommendable French violin bow with a swan head was made in Mirecourt around 1920 and is made of light-brown brasil wood. The distinctive ebony frog is nickel mounted and has a Pearl eye. The stick of medium strength has a round diameter and features a surprisingly good combination of balance and stiffness: it feels well balanced with its perfectly distributed diameter. The bow has a total weight of 61.4 g and a total length of 74.6 cm. This simple but truly useful French Mirecourt violin bow is - like all violin bows from Corilon violins - ready to play and embodies all of the excellent playing attributes that bows from France are sought after for. With its large, powerful sound of typical French character this violin bow has excellent grip and response and is an excellent choice at the price.
