This simple French violin bow of simple quality material delivers surprising sound and playing qualities

This French violin bow is a simple quality piece made in Mirecourt around 1940, and features outstanding playing qualities at the price. The round bow stick is highly active, it was made of brasil wood of quality and this features soft and fluid playing activity. The stick is of good reactive strength. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with Pearl eye and metal adjuster. The weight is 61.3 g and this bow is very handy at play with a balance point that is located in the lower half of the stick, near the middle and is measured at 26,2 cm from the frog end (adjuster length included). This recommended French violin bow is undamaged and like all stringed instruments and bows from us has been brought fine playing condition. It is a tolerant partner and the sound is warm, large, clear, rich in overtones and the bow plays fluidly and softly.
