Gold mounted Markus Fischer bow

August 25, 2016 at 09:37 AM · What is your opinion on high-end bows made by Markus Fischer? I am very interested in a gold mounted bow made by him that I have found at a local violinshop. The asking price is around 4000 euros. Is this to much? Any opinions about this maker and his bows are welcome :)

But I think his silver-mounted bows are priced under 2,000 even now, and I question whether a gold mounted bow of his is worth double that. I'd be surprised if you could recoup your 4,000 investment if you tried to resell.
