Recently, I got hold of a violin bow with the nurnberger name on it. I was hoping I might get some useful opinions on its authenticity here. Origin: It was gifted to me by a friend who knows nothing about music. He claims to have found it in his family house in an empty violin case. Tone: The bow performed beautiful resonant tones much harmonic. (It's less subjective since I felt this before seeing "nurnberger" and thought it was a worthless old bow). It easily has one of the best sounds I tried despite its original hair being old and yellowed. (I did afterwards rehaired it) Appearance: As photo shows it has *ALBERT NURNBERGER* with "nurn" almost worn off. The frog and screw does seem to be original. Though the frog is strangely uneven with a 'rough' cut out part on it. Presumably done by its last owner out it his/her playing habits. The whalebone windings seem to be legit and has white markings on the "belly" of the stick. Presumably rosin marks. According to my highly unprofessional eyes, the tip suggests it's nurnberger's tourt model if it indeed is genuine. One another question I was hoping to get answer is that there is the metal bit attached to the end of stick that's not a part of the screw. Has anyone seen similar bows? What's is purpose? Maybe to lengthen/rebalance the bow? Better photos could always be arranged. Thanks to all for reading or replying to this post. Cheers!
Dear Sirs, I have read that some bows from the C.N.Bazin Workshop bear the stamp " PAJEOT". I had never seen one before; a few "DODD"s, many " TOURTE"s and now, is this one? Opinions? Nickel mounted, 57g, Stick length 72,9cm. Very good condition, I hope my pictures can do some justice to the wood! Thanks, Bownut
