F. C. Pfretzschner, powerful, active violin bow - silver

The powerful, clear, ringing sound that this silver mounted Markneukirchen violin bow of light-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 and active stick of excellent tension with a round diameter has remarkable elasticity, power and tension when played and bears the original stamp, „F C Pfretzschner,“ above the frog. Premium-quality Markneukirchen bows made in small master workshops 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, this F.C. Pfretzschner bow has a silver-mounted ebony frog, a Parisian eyee and a three-part silver-ebony button. The violin 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.
