Albert Leicht, my discovery of the month
Today I found an old German bow maker, Albert Leicht. I did not know him before, but it was a pleasent suprise to test the bow. I did test two of his bows, both more on the brilliant side, my instrument, on which I usually prefer dark bows, seemed to explode in resonancy.
That may just be a perfect hit for my instrument, but the playability is a dream too.
The bow plays like some of the best bows I tried, including very expensive french ones. The best part, altough it is really good, it is only at a fraction of what I would expect to pay for such a bow. I bought one with an octagonal stick. Even when you hit it hard into the string it stays controllable, even when under pressure the response is quite linear.
I am curiouse, do you know bows by him? He seems quite underrated to me. Or did I just luck into good bows of him and the rest iof his bows are not very special?
