Repairing a warped violin bow
Kallie posted a topic in The PegboxHi, Can anyone please help me with methods on how to straighten a warped/skew violin bow? I recently got quite a few cheap chinese factory bows for free from a music shop, so I have enough practice material. Thank you.
K. Reindahl Bow
Yucca posted a topic in The PegboxI came across a nice violin bow with the name K. Reindahl on it. No other markings that I can see. It weighs 58 grams. I had the grip rewound and new hair put on. My luthier said it was definately pernambuco. My question is if anyone knows anything about the maker. I don't know if it was Knut Reindahl or not. Please let me know if I need to post pics. Thanks, Mike
Is £3500 a good sale value for my Sartory copy violin bow?
manny_moo posted a topic in The PegboxHi all, I recently found out that one of my violin bows is very old, French, and rather valuable. It's labelled "E. SARTORY A PARIS" but I'm assured, by the people who are currently looking for buyers for me, that it's a decent quality copy, and not an authentic Sartory. It has also been fully restored prior to sale. The best offer they've had so far is £3500; they also said that if I were to try to sell it at auction I'd be likely to get half that at best. So I'm fairly happy with that, given that, in my few hours of research I found that most authentic Sartory's sell for something like £10,000-£15,000; so £3500 for a copy seems pretty fair. That said, I also convinced myself that mine's an original and so should be worth much more, though, as I'm sure is clear, I have no experience here ;-) Anyway, given my lack of experience, I felt it would be useful to gather some more opinions, should anyone want to offer them. Any advice would be very much appreciated! I'm also curious as to what might distinguish this bow as a copy from an original. Pictures below. Cheers and thanks in advance, Manny
