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, probably in the Laberte  workshop. The round bow stick was made of brasil wood of quality and this features soft and fluid playing activity. The stick is of medium strength. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with Pearl eye and metal adjuster. The weight is 58,2 g and this bow is very handy at play with a balance point that is located in the upper half of the stick, near the middle and is measured at 26,5 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 bright, clear, rich in overtones and the bow plays fluidly and softly.
