This well-finished, silver-mounted, Chinese 1/2 size violin bow is marketed under the “Schumann” brand, although the stick itself is not stamped. The workmanship is very clean, and the pearl slide is particularly attractive. The stick, made from “Ipe” wood, a fine-grained alternative to pernambuco, is very steady on the string, articulates well and has a strong, clear spiccato. Silver mounts on a bow of this price is remarkably good value for money.
