$2,000.00

Call 866.742.7270 for availability

A master bowmaker at the Finkel atelier, second only to J.S. Finkel, Fischer creates remarkably-crafted bows which bring out the unique qualities of each piece of choice pernambuco. Firm to strong stick, ideal weight and balance. Round tone with clarity, focus, and excellent response.

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."

Do you need a new bow? Most players, regardless of skill level, eventually come to the realization that a new bow would be beneficial to their technical and musical development.

Baroque Violin Bow - Snakewood - 4/4 Size

Discover the Articulation That Only a Baroque Bow Can Achieve
At the suggestion of concert violinist Rachel Barton Pine, SHAR is pleased to offer players our new baroque bows. These are the same bows that are used by orchestras around the United States as part of Ms. Pine's program to bring baroque performance practices to modern symphony orchestras. The shaft and frog and made from snakewood, the traditional wood that has been used for centuries for such bows. Upon tightening, the camber (curve) of the bow is outward, which is the reverse of modern bows. Ms. Pine recommends that baroque bows require more tightening than modern bows, to bring out their desired characteristics, suggesting that they should be tightened just to the point of an outward camber. These major differences help produce the kind of "attack and release" in baroque-era music that is approached differently than in more modern performance practices.

Rachel Barton Pine, acknowledged as one of the world's expert performers and pedagogues of Bach's Sonatas and Partitas, is one of the very few artists that easily transitions from the baroque era to more modern music. Often playing baroque music on a violin with baroque setup, Ms. Pine also advocates for the use of a baroque bow even with a violin having modern setup, when playing baroque era music. The articulation and phrasing required in a more authentic baroque performance is much more easily attained with a baroque bow.

This bow is for violin. Similar bows are available for viola and cello.
