Fine German master violin bow by Franz Winkler, silver

Franz Winkler learned the artisanry of bow making from his father in Markneukirchen. Soon he started to work autonomous and went to the United States, where he gained a lot of experience. At the beginning of the 20th Century he returned to Markneukirchen, where he died in 1962. Winklers works are influenced by several French masters, but his own "Markneukirchen style" is clearly visible throughout. This Franz Winkler bow with a round stick was crafted in the 1940s of medium strong pernambuco wood that features surprisingly high elasticity. The neatly finished ebony frog is silver mounted and decorated with a Parisian eye. Franz Winklers reputation for perfectly balanced bows speaks in this specimen, that was worked over completely by our luthiers and is offered ready to play. The balance-point is centered. The measured balance-point of the 74.3 cm long bow is at 25.8 cm from the frog end. The soun dproduced is warm, clear, large - this bow adds volume to the tone.
