Does anyone share the depth of enthusiasm I have for this master bow maker Fritz Meinel .The following bow was made in 1920 and it supersedes any other bow I have ever played on. Thomassin, Martin, Charles Bazin, Penzel, Rau....just to name a few. I have heard the expression applied to him as " the poor man's Nürnberger" but this is on a par with a fine Albert Nürnberger that I also played on. So I am not quite sure where " poor " comes into it. Maybe the market value? But this is undoubtedly one of the finest bows I have ever held and the colour and sound with my Luigi Azzola is for me near perfection.
Dear friends, I have found this rather nice unstamped silver mounted German bow( in my opinion). Any thoughts would be appreciated, or does it fall in the category cited before here as "a nice Markneukirchen silver mounted bow between the wars." The head is very elegant with a rather long nose. It has a two piece heel plate. As far as I can see there are no pins in the screw.
