Ludwig Bausch & Sohn, 19th century German violin bow

This highly recommended violin bow hails from the Leipzig atelier of Ludwig Bausch & Sohn, which was founded in 1863 by Ludwig Christian August Bausch (1805-1871), who was considered Germany's Tourte.

This highly recommended violin bow hails from the Leipzig atelier of Ludwig Bausch & Sohn, which was founded in 1863 by Ludwig Christian August Bausch (1805-1871), who was considered Germany's Tourte. The Bausch stamp over the frog is a symbol of the outstanding reputation that the Bausch name attained for itself on the international market for musical instruments. The solid round stick of dark-brown pernambuco was crafted to be very tense and elastic; it was fitted with a delicate and expressive nickel-mounted ebony frog with a mother-of-pearl eye and a premium-quality slide of opalescent pinkish-green mother-of-pearl. With a total length of 74.1 cm and a weight of 57.2 g, this extremely versatile Bausch violin bow is very evenly distributed: its centred and broad balance point measures at 27.2 cm. Some repairs to the end of the stick behind the frog do not have any impact on stability or playability and allow us to offer this fine Bausch violin bow at a very low price. It creates a clear, large, warm, resonant sound.
