This fine early violin bow after James Tubbs was made around 1870: a fine, lively violin bow. The round stick is unstamped, made of fine, textured pernambuco wood and features surprising stiffness and acitivity. The delicate ebony frog is silver mounted with white pearl slide, the expressive head has a silver head plate - the silver button is a copy from the Grünke atelier. Strong artistic expression of frog and head reveal an artist maker of this fine violin bow, the perfect weight distribution and playability witness the experienced master. This fine, highly elastic and vibrant violin bow produces a notably large, warm, liquid tone of a unique noble character and permits a wide range of finely nuanced interpretations.
