Markneukirchen violin bow large, voluminous sound and brand mark C. Friedrich Glass

This good quality violin bow was made approx. 1950 in Markneukirchen, Saxony, a skilled work that was made of attractive orange-brown pernambuco wood. The strong octagonal stick features high strength and is an excellent player to fit thin sounding instruments. The interesting head is finely carved, the handmade nickel-mounted ebony frog has a slide of greenish-rose mother-of-pearl, that is typical for Markneukirchen bow making. The percieved balance point is in the upper half of the stick, the measured balance point is at 27.8 cm including the adjuster. This strong German violin bow is a recommendable, strong and active violin bow that we can recommend and that features a strong, large, warm, focussed sound of character that works best with thin or sharp sounding violins where it adds volume to the tone.
