This sophisticated and perfectly balanced Paul Weidhaas violin bow is a masterpiece by this famous Markneukirchen bow maker who marked this bow with his original stamp. The silver mounted ebony frog and the silver button are high-quality fittings that include a fine silver slide with ornate carvings which only draw even more attention to the nature of the elegant work produced by this premium maker. A closer look shows how delicately the head and the octagonal stick were crafted from reddish-brown pernambuco. This Paul Weidhaas work follows in the footsteps of the tradition established by Victor Fétique, who was an important source of inspiration to the young Paul Weidhaas as an employee and student. The influences of other famous ateliers – such as that of Georg Winterling in Hamburg, Max Möller in Amsterdam and Josef Vedral in Den Haag – helped Paul Weidhaas become one of the finest bow makers in his home of Saxony, where he established his own business in 1918 and remained until his death in 1962. The well-balanced weight distribution of the Paul Weidhaas bow makes it possible to play powerfully and actively. The voluminous sound is radiant and clear, and this fine Paul Weidhaas violin bow deserves our special recommendation. It has been maintained in nearly new condition and now made ready to play.
