H.R. Pfretzschner Antique Pernambuco Cello Bow

Weight: 74.3g, Balance: 9 3/8"

Weight: 74.3 gms, Balance: 9 3/8"

Maker: H.R. Pfretzschner

This bow is a compelling, active character. Do not be fooled by its lightness! The higher register is soft, sweet, and sonorous, the low register full, powerful and dark. The lightness of this bow makes it incredibly agile; quick passages and string crossings are effortless. In intense, lyrical passages, this bow really shines - it creates a glowing, colorful resonance with a rich focus. This bow is a dream to play. 

Octagonal stick, silver-fitted. A beautiful Pfretzschner cello bow. Great player. Pfretzschner bows are still undervalued compared to French bows of the same quality, but this gap is narrowing and the best German bows are experiencing a significant rise in value in the past few years.
