French violin bow by Marc Laberte - a lightweight bow with convincing sound and playing characteristics

This lightweight French violin bow was made in the 1950's the workshop of Marc Laberte in Mirecourt, the center of classical French violin and bow making. Marc Laberte built this violin bows from reddish-brown pernambuco and added a finely crafted, nickel mounted ebony frog, the typical blue-silver winding (which we preserved despite some signs of age) and a handsome, one-piece adjuster. The unstamped stick is of good tension and activity and of medium strength. This recommendable Marc Laberte violin bow features convincing playing characteristics with a centered balance point, which is measured at 25.0 cm of the 74.4 cm long stick. Thus, the violin bow lies comfortably in the hand and is easy in control. We recommend this lightweight French violin bow for its clear, large and powerful French tone with rich volume.
