I have quite a nice collection of Brazilian bows already, like Lo Turco and Guido Pascoli, and some contemporary makers.
It just happened that this bow showed up, and I never crossed a Pfretzschner before.
I’ve been this bow, stamped PREFTZSCHNER, with gold(?) button and frog, and D.R. P. stamped on the ferrule.
But it has a neck/head graft.
It is a good player, and the seller is asking US $ 1.100 for it.
What are you thoughts?
I have been offered this violin, and would like some opinions on it.
I find the scroll nicely made, but the 2 pieces bottom rib should exclude a real Klotz.
Don't know the LOB yet.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
