This good-quality, student-grade bow from Edwin Lothar Herrmann’s workshop has an octagonal, pernambuco stick and nickel mounts. The stamp “E.L. HERRMANN” is one of a number of variations used by Herrmann, who also stamped the frogs with his family’s coat of arms. The stick is strong and resistant, though the bow itself is relatively light, at 78.6 grams. The Herrmann workshop produced a range of bows; the best are suitable for top professional use. This bow would suit a student in the higher grades who wishes to continue.
