SALE H. R. Pfretzschner viola bow. A strong player, c. 1940

This German viola bow by H. R. Pfretzschner, a strong active player, was made by the legendary Markneukirchen workshop. H.R. Pfretzschner served as a leading name in his art by pioneering the principles of modern French bow making in Germany. This good viola bow has his stamp on its frog and stick and shows defining features of this great workshop. The octonagonal, strong and elastic stick of orange-brown pernambuco has Hermann Richard Pfretzschner's typical diameter distribution and is of top quality, as is the nickel-mounted frog with its Parisian eye and capsule adjuster. This rare Pfretzschner viola bow has its balance point centered, slightly inclined towards the head at 26.6 cm including the length of the adjuster. It plays strong, actively and precisely and produces an extremely large, clear, bright, powerful and radiant tone.
