  1. I took the CF cello bow that came as part of my outfit, in immediate dislike. Why? 1. I am biased against CF. I admit it! 2. It's noticeably unattractive. Although not as bad as the old Glasser bows. 3. I don't know how much it is worth, independently, but given it's branded with the name of the outfit and there's no information available on it...it is certainly not expensive. And yeah...of course it's entirely adequate for me to squeak around with. I did try it on my violin, just for fun...and was actually surprised at how well it sounded in that scenario...so I assume it can't be a complete dud. I can certainly tell/hear/feel the difference a violin/viola bow makes. Are cello bows the same, or are they also less fussy? How much of a difference would a better bow make? Or, how well would one need to play until one would even notice bow quality?
  2. Hi, everyone! I am looking for some help identifying which member of the Nürnberger family made my cello bow. I have reason to believe it was made by Franz Albert Nürnberger II based on my research, but I am by no means an expert, nor am I anywhere close to being one. I have attached detailed photos of the bow and have enhanced the brands for your reference. There are three brands on the stick - “ALBERT NÜRNBERGER” in a sans-serif font above the frog, "1896" and "No. 5729" on the underside of the frog. As I understand it, the sans-serif font was used by Franz Jr. from 1884 when he took over the business until around 1910, when the serif font began to be used. Does anyone have any thoughts?
  3. I came across this picture of a ferrule included with an outfit on eBay. Curious as to what some of these stamps mean. I recognize the “925” silver stamp, the FXS shield and the Lyon insignia, but no idea of the other two. Seller lists it as a French trade bow... never seen so many stamps on a bow before. A bit gaudy if you ask me.
  4. I recently came across this unusual-looking cello bow stamped H R Pfretzschner and stamped with the Saxonian crest. The frog has an unusual "striped" aspect, and the slide has alternating bands of white (bone? ivory?) within the same wood as the rest of the frog. The tip plate is mostly gone. The pictures aren't great, I know, but what do you all think about this strange frog? Any idea if this could be a genuine Pfretzschner? I tried it out and found that it plays nicely - knowing of course that the balance will change once the tip plate is replaced - but the stick is somewhat soft in the middle. Is this a flaw that can be corrected by recambering? The stick is nice and straight, with no warping, cracks or flaws that I could detect with a magnifying glass. It's offered for sale at an antiques shop by someone who clearly knows nothing about bows or instruments, but knew enough to google "Pfretzschner" and slap a 2,500 euro price tag on it. I've bargained him down to 800 euros. What do you all think? Thanks for your replies!
  5. My neighbor gave me this bow, as his New Year's gift for me: He buys used cars in Germany and sells them here in Bosnia. In the last one he bought, he found that bow in the trunk. The bow is very stiff (really very stiff, in comparison to violin bows, but I do not know how stiff one cello bow have to be). I do not see any marks on it. Its weight is 85.2 grams. My knowledge about cello bows is so comprehensive that I scarcely dared to write that it is the cello bow, so I hope that some kind Maestronaut could write a few words about it. I do not know anything about cello bows, so every word would be highly appreciated. Thanks, Franc
