German viola bow

This German viola bow is a quality piece of mature craftmnship that was made in Markneukirchen early in the 20th century, around 1920. The viola bow features a convenient weight of 64.1 g, with its balance-point centered, measured at 26.5 cm including the length of the adjuster. The octagonal stick was made of good quality pernambuco wood; it features a noteworthy distribution of diameter that allows powerful yet fluid play and a precise tone. The nickel mounted ebony frog is decorated with a white mother-of-pearle eye, a classical and tasteful setup. With some minor traces of use this old German viola bow is perfectly preserved. We recommend it as a good player and offer it ready to play after a rehair and general work-over by our luthiers.
