Knopf - Master violin bow full of character

This master violin bow is the fine work of the Knopf family in Markneukirchen. The piece was crafted in the early 20th century and has a highly elastic and springy stick of dark brown pernambuco. The small, elegant, upright head, a typical feature of the English school, has a distinctive character to it; the ebony frog has a large Parisian eye and fittings of genuine silver with monogram silver engraving to the frog ring. Masterful craftsmanship can be seen in the central weight distribution of the round stick; it is 74.1 cm in length, and the bow weighs a total of 60.7 g. This is a bow for demanding musicians and is in perfect condition. It has a clear, large and sophisticated sound that is fluid and resonant. This fine violin bow deserves our warmest recommendation!
