W.E. Hill & Sons 4/4 Violin Bow
Hill bows are made with the highest quality Pernambuco and almost always have silver or gold tip faces. The maker of this particular Hill Bow was Arthur John Barnes (1888-1945), originally a cabinet maker who joined the HILL workshop in 1919. He left the shop 20 years later to volunteer in the war.
While working for HILL, all of Arthur J. Barnes bows were stamped with a number 5 on the tip face.
Come check out the HILL bow we have in stock. It has the original hardware including the frog, screw and tip face stamped with a 5. A light bow weighing 59g and with a balance point of 26cm from the screw end. This bow is in fantastic condition and a must-see/must-try for the professional or keen violinist.
