With its clearly evident French influences, this 1930's Hermann Richard Pfretzschner violin bpw leaves no doubt as to the epochal lifetime achievement of this bow maker. After his three years in Paris under Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume, Hermann Richard Pfretzschner returned to his home in Saxony in 1875 and set new standards, turning his father’s atelier into a wide-open door for contemporary French style. In comparison to his earlier works, this violin bow after F. N. Voirin is comparatively heavy at 63.4 g, but its craftsmanship demonstrates a delicate elegance and refinement, especially at the head. The outstanding weight distribution and centrally positioned balance point at 26.1 cm of the total length of 74.1 cm give musicians a wide range of options in their performance and musical expression. The solid octagonal stick was crafted of premium dark-brown pernambuco, and the ebony frog is ornamented with a Pearl eye and mounted in genuine silver. The stick and frog both have the original H. R. Pfretzschner stamp. A small repair was made on the frog end of the stick and has no bearing whatsoever on its musical properties. This highly recommended H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow was meticulously set up by the specialists at our atelier for restoration, and it is now ready to play. It produces a full, warm, sophisticated sound with compelling size and precision. The price includes a certificate of authenticity by expert Klaus Grünke.
