Old German violin bow Markneukirchen, Mathias Thomä

This good German violin bow was made by Mathias Thomä in Markneukirchen in the mid 20th century. It is a strong sounding violin bow is able to add volume, warmth and clarity to the sound of the violin it is played with. This Mathias Thomä violin bow featurs an octagonal stick made of red-brown premium pernambuco wood equipped with a nickel mounted ebony frog. The stick bears the original "M. Thomä" stamp. The slide is made of white-greenish shimmering Pearl, quiet accurately let into the hard ebony wood. The felt balance-point is almost centered, slightly inclined towards the upper half of the stick and the bow feels well balanced in the hand, playing strong and agile, producing a warm, voluminous, clear sound. The measured balance-point of the 74.7 cm bow is at 25.1 cm from the frog end. The stick shows signs from playing but has no damage. A strong, active, versatile violin bow that deserves our special recommendation.
