French violin bow, Mirecourt, approx. 1920

This simple but recommendable French violin bow was made approx. 1920 in Mirecourt - either in the renowned J.T.L. or the Laberte ateliers. Its strong, round stick has excellent stiffness and tension - it was crafted from barsil wood, a good alternative bow wood, and features a very well distributed diameter and a nicely designed head. The narrow ebony frog is nickel mounted and has a golden-rose-yellow shimmering mother-of-pearl slide and a mother-of-pearl eye of the same color. The balance-point is sensed well-centered, slightly inclied towards the tip and measured at 28.2 cm at a total length of 73.8 cm. This good French violin bow plays very well in active bow techniques and is despite its weight easy in control and handling. Like all Corilon instruments and bows, wored over and ready to play. This good bow produces a bright, large, clear powerful sound that deserves our best recommendation in the price range.
