This good-quality, student-grade bow was probably made for the expert dealer Emil Herrmann’s Berlin shop. The octagonal, pernambuco stick is strong and resistant, though the bow itself is relatively light, at 75 grams. There were many bow makers in the Herrmann family, with workshops producing a range of bows, the best of which are suitable for top professional use. This nickel-mounted bow would suit a serious student with a lighter build, or an older player who doesn’t like handling too much weight.
