This new master violin bow illustrates the centuries-long family tradition of the Markneukirchen bow-making workshop of Michael Mönnig at its finest manifestation; it confirms the technical perfection and distinctive profile which classic artisanry is capable of, even in the 21st century. Its head was crafted with a great love of detail and full of character, and the excellent fittings of this silver-mounted bow, three-part button, and ebony frog with a Parisian eye bring life to the enduring style of Saxonian bow making that has prevailed for generations. The Mönnig name has been a well-established part of this tradition for over 250 years. Remarkable resilience is a defining feature of the bow's round stick, and its centrally positioned balance point located slightly towards upper half helps define the excellent playing properties of this bow which weighs 61.5 g. Its radiant sound satisfies high musical standards with its sweet and bright acoustic profile ― emphasizing that this perfectly balanced Mönnig bow has fully earned the two stars next to its original master stamp, a designation he chose to mark that the bow was of superior quality.
