S259 Berg cello bow$ 2,750.00
S259 Bob Berg cello bow, Wellington, New Zealand late 20th century
This is an early New Zealand-made prototype for the now famous “Berg” bows made and marketed in the U.S. Bob Berg, an American double bass player in the NZSO, was a pioneer in the making of carbon-fibre bows. While his bow heads are not as elegant as modern productions, the sticks share the attractive, wood-like texture and colour, and the playability is very good, with excellent articulation.
S298 Albert Nürnberger Jnr, Germany, after 1920$ 4,000.00
This octagonal, silver-mounted pernambuco bow is well weighted, at 83.9 grams, and has excellent playing qualities. A head break has been repaired skilfully with a splice, which hasn’t affected the bow’s performance characteristics but has brought its sale value down to an affordable level for a professional player or advanced student.
