click picture to enlarge

This Knoll workshop bow was made around 1970 in Regnitzlosau, Germany in the workshop that was founded by Alfred Knoll in 1932. The shop is very close to the Czech border and 25 miles from the famous violin making town of Markneukirchen, Germany. The Knoll workshop produces many levels of bows for students, advancing players, and professionals. The workshop is still in operation today under the ownership of Alfred’s grandson, Gerald Knoll.

Mr. Judd collected all kinds of string instruments and bows in the 1970’s and 1980’s. This bow is about 50 years old and made it into his collection of hundreds of items discovered in the New York City/New Jersey area. The cello bow is a pernambuco specie, nickel mount, fully-lined octagonal section bow stamped: ALFRED KNOLL. The ebony frog has single mother-of-pearl eyes and the bow has a three-piece endscrew. We have fully gone over the bow here in our workshop and it is in very good condition. The bow will make a nice addition for the player looking to get into a nice pernambuco level bow.
