F. C. Pfretzschner, silver mounted viola bow

The large warm sound that this silver mounted viola bow of reddish-brown pernambuco creates is the ultimate testimony to the flawless craftsmanship with which it was produced in the mid/late 20th century in Markneukirchen, the Saxonian violin-making city. The powerful stick has remarkable elasticity when played and bears the original stamp, „F C Pfretzschner,“ above the frog. Premium-quality Markneukirchen bows made for the highly regarded company GEWA were given this brand name, which justifiably draws upon the finest artisan traditions of Markneukirchen bows. Common features for these pieces include top-tier fittings with a silver-mounted ebony frog, a rounded frog ring and a three-part button. The viola bow made its way to us in undamaged condition and has been meticulously set up by the expert luthiers at our atelier for violins and bows. We now offer it ready to play and in prime condition.
