SOLD In recent years, the "long" Pfretzschner model German bow has enjoyed a revival in popularity. This is an outstanding example by reknowned Michigan bowmaker Roger Zabinski. We are very pleased to be representing this fine maker for the first time, and this is the finest-made of this model bow we've ever seen. Nicely figured wood, extraordinary workmanship, elegant detailing. The ebony adjuster has a pearl eye in the end. Great-playing bow with the advantages of its longer hair length. Discover what this model can do for you, and gain the asset of owning one of the few bass bows by Mr. Zabinski!
The long Pfretzschner-model bow: while H.R. Pfretzschner certainly made a majority of his bows in a more ordinary length, a somewhat longer Pretzschner bow is not uncommon, and some original ones still exist. You may have seen Joel Quarrington playing with a bow of this model. Philip Sklar of Toscanini's NBC Orchestra used one of the original long Pfretzschner German bows.
