Antique German violin bow from the 19th century with a bright, radiant sound rich in overtones which perfectly complements dark and mellow sounding violins

This rare antique violin bow is a 19th century  Markneukirchen work that was made in the Knopf workshops around 1880. The strong, tense octagonal stick is made of reddish brown pernambuco wood. This makes this fine violin bow suitable for strong players who play with more pressure. The finely made ebony frog is typical for the knopf workshop and nickel mounted. The balance point of this fine Knopf violin bow is in the middle, slightly towards the upper half and is measured 26,3 cm from the frog end including the adjuster. This 19th century violin bow is perfectly preserved without any damage and ready to play - it produces a bright, clear, powerful and radiant sound rich in overtones that adds clarity to the tone of mellow or dull sounding instruments.
