This 3/4-sized violin bow by Adolgf C. Schuster offers good opportunities to learn proper bowing techniques due to its ideal weight distribution - and great joy in daily practising. This rare quality 3/4 violin bow was crafted by Adolf C. Schuster in the traditional violin making town of Markneukirchen in Saxony. It bears the original stamp and is an excellent example of good master craftsmanship, that is rarely found at small-sized bows for stringed instruments. The strong, octagonal stick was made of fine, red-brown colored pernambuco wood; the head is a remarkably detailed and tasteful work. This 3/4 violin bow is a strong player and procuces a bright, crisp yet voluminous tone. The ebony frog is nickel mounted and decorated with a three part adjuster. The frog has been widened at thumb position in order to comfort children's bow grip. The balance-point of the bow is sensed in the lower half of the stick. The expert luthiers in our atelier completely worked over this bow that is now offered ready to play.
