French viola bow. Marc Laberte, silver mounted, c.1950

In the 1950s, this premium French viola bow was crafted in the workshop of Marc Laberte in Mirecourt, the village which served as the capital city of classical violin and bow making in France. The original "Parisot" stamp on the active stick of high tension indicates that this is the work of Marc Laberte, who selected a brown pernambuco and gave the viola bow a finely carved ebony frog with silver fittings and an attractive three-piece button. His meticulous craftsmanship reflects the art of a well-trained and experienced hand. This convincing French Laberte viola bow has outstanding playing properties. Its balance point feels well-centred at 25.8 cm of the total 74.5 cm length. With its weight of 71.4 g, it feels pleasant in your hand. Kept in top condition, this fine French viola bow is now ready to play after having been set up by the specialists at our atelier. We recommend this Marc Laberte viola bow with the clear, large and powerful, French and noble sound it creates with good volume and excellent response.
