Fine silver mounted Markneukirchen violin bow, Hill model, 1940/1950

This fine German violin bow was crafted on a Hill model around 1940 / 1950 in Markneukirchen, then the centre of German bow making where many small family-lead ateliers produced world-class pieces. This work by an unknown master bears witness to the high quality of Markneukirchen bows, thanks to the persuasive power of its clear, matured and noble sound. The elastic octagonal stick of brown pernambuco is of medium strength and plays fluidly, it measures 74.5 cm and is of very good quality with an eye-catchingly well-designed head. Its balance point is at 27.0 cm and feels well centered in the hand. The bow was worked over thoroughly by our luthiers and is offered ready to play. Its features - an ebony frog and fine silver mountings - simply and elegantly emphasize the valuable nature of this excellent bow that has a fine and noble, mature tone of good strength and volume. It is a violin bow that playes fluidly and softly and is useful for players with that do not bow with high pressure or brilliant sounding violins or new violins.
