Fine violin bow after Tourte, master bow, 1920's

This fine German violin bow after Tourte was made approx. 1920 in an unknown master in Markneukirchen, where it was crafted as a successful example of exceptionally good artisanry, with finest aesthetical and musical qualities. The octagonal stick is made of first choice pernambuco wood and is of medium strength, allowing fluid play. Its total length is 74.6 cm, the measured balance point at 26.5 cm is sensed in the middle of the bow. The elegant shape of the finely carved head determines the classical beauty of the bow, the finely finished ebony frog is nickel mounted - probably due to shortness of precious metal in war times. This great copy of Tourte is rightfully decorated with such a beautiful setup; it is undamaged and was, like all instruments and bows from us, made ready to play by our luthiers and features a warm, precise, noble sound.
