Bow Type: Violin
Price: Upon Request
Maker: Paul Martin Siefried
Description: Born and raised in California, Paul Siefried quickly found an interest in bow making and restoration. He apprenticed under the renowned Hans Weisshaar and later started his own shop in Port Townsend, Washington. Paul entered an International Competition in La Joya, California where he won three gold medals and one silver. He repeated the feat two years later and by his third competition, he was named the "H’ors Concourse” and was invited to become a judge for the competition.
This particular bow is one of his very earliest bows made circa 1980’s while in the employ of Hans Weisshaar and bears his name on the stick. The initials “P.S.” and the number 16 are branded on the underside of the stick. The bow is mounted in mountain mahogany and gold. The wood for the frog was sourced from the local mountains in Big Bear, California. This bow is in mint condition and is both a historically significant bow for this maker as well as a wonderful playing bow. The bow produces a warm, rich tone with a nice staccato and superb balance. Weight: 61.5 grams.
