I recently went bow shopping and i have found a german bow that fit me perfectly (it felt like an extention of my hand) and was a delight to play especially for string crossings and techniques like sautille and spiccato could be executed effortlessly. Its sound was kinda meh compared to some fine french sticks that i have tried but it is not too bad either
However, it is an older bow from the 1920s and was from a german workshop, and costs around 2400 freedom eagles. I was just wondering if the asking price from the dealer is justified, given its age and provenance.
Can any of the experts give advice on the quality of the pernambuco and perhaps even shed some light on the particular workshop it was made in? Should there be any special care and attention given to older bows?
Attatched is the picture of the bow in question. The stamp on the bow simply reads "TOURTE". The bow happens to be 55.7g and a bit tip heavy from what the sticker says
Sorry for my ignorance, i know next to nothing about bows.
