This fine H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow hails from the renowed Pfretzschner master bow maker shop founded by Hermann Richard Pfretzschner who studied with E. Sartory in Paris; a beautiful piece closely following the concepts of the French models. It bears the original H. R. Pfretzschner brandstamps on shaft and frog. The balance has perfectly been adjusted and so this bow is convenient to play and thus produces a large, warm and radiant tone. The octagonal stick is of fluid strength, tensed and elastic, a delicate, active player - the stick is made of remarkably beautiful dark red-brown pernambuco wood. The ebony frog is silver mounted with a Parisian eye and white shimmering pearl slide and a silver capsule adjuster. This powerful H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow has it's balance point centered, measured at 27.4 cm from the frog end. The violin bow is in immediate playing condition, and like all Corilon violin bows worked over and ready to play. It plays actively and produces a very convincing warm, large, powerful tone.
