I recently bought a bow made in the 19th century by Ludwig Bausch in Leipzig. It is nickel mounted and weighs 60grams. It is a fantastic stick and I am surprised they are worth so little. I realise the Baucsh name has been devalued by the flood of cheap student bows so stamped, but the playability of his original work deserves to be more highly recognised. Are early German bows a forgotten bargain? Does anyone here play with one of his bows?
