The tradition of the master bowmaker is alive and well at the workshop of Johannes Finkel in Brienz, Switzerland. Mr. Finkel's bowmaking heritage descends from his great-grandfather, Ewald Weidhaas, a craftsman from the renowned workshop of Victor Fetique. It has passed through the hands of his grandfather, Paul Weidhaas and father, Siegfried Finkel. As a fourth generation bowmaker, Mr. Finkel's devotion to incomparable craftsmanship and the fine traditions of bowmaking have placed him among the world's pre-eminent living makers.

"For some decades it has been our pleasure to offer bows from the legendary Swiss Atelier of the Finkel family. The establishment has, for over 40 years, provided performing artists, teachers and students with the finest bows. I personally own bows by Johannes Finkel and Markus Fisher and have recommended bows from all the other makers in the Atelier to my students and colleagues. I have been visiting my friends in Switzerland for years to discuss and select fine examples of their work for our customers. The centuries-old art of bow-making, using the finest pernambuco with only the highest grade ebony, silver and gold, lives on in this preeminent workshop. I highly recommend any of the Finkel line of bows to our valued customers."

Baroque Pernambuco Violin Bow - 4/4 size

Item# BVB50P

$109.00

In Stock

Note: This is a Baroque violin bow, which is typically only used for baroque style playing. If you are buying a first bow or backup bow for a beginner or student, or if you do not intend to play strictly baroque music, then this bow is not recommended!

Baroque bows have always held a fascination with classical string players for their old-world elegance and beauty, but they have traditionally been too expensive for all but the serious Baroque player or the classical player/bow collector. After receiving numerous requests over the years we have worked to develop a Baroque bow that would be affordable for a beginning Baroque player or for a classical player interested in owning a bow in this elegant style. There is no notable difference in performance between pernambuco and snakewood bows.
