A good German violin bow made by Max Schäffner. Max Schäffner was born in Markneukirchen in 1870 and studied violin and bow making. He settled to the city of Hamburg in 1906. His bows are finely made and much appreciated. This good violin bow was made in Hamburg around 1920. The octagonal stick is of medium strength and features high activity and elasticity, the bow is a somewhat soft player and not suitable for high pressure players. The stick is made of fine quality pernambuco wood and is stamped M. Schäffner above the frog. The head is especially elegant and neatly finished, the ebony frog with Parisian eye and a three part adjuster. The bow is undamaged and in perfect condition, tt's length is 74,6 cm. The bow has it's balance point in the middle of the stick, slightly inclined towards the head, measured at 27.7 cm including the length of the adjuster. An excellent active bow producing a clear, sweet, noble tone - this bow complements mellow sounding violins and adds clarity and elegance to the tone.
