Description

Lothar Herrmann’s bow making tradition ran back in his family to the early 18th century. He learned the craft from his grandfather and father and worked in his father’s workshop until 1960, although he used his own name stamp on bows after 1949.

This bow has an octagonal pernambuco stick with gold mounted ebony frog which is decorated with Parisian eyes and the family’s coat of arms; the three piece adjuster of gold / ebony / gold, capped with a pearl eye. It is a nice strong stick with good pressure resistance and produces a big, warm, rich sound with good articulation. It is very well balanced, full sounding from frog to tip, a bow of great quality.
