A very good German violin bow by
Hermann Albert Hoyer
(1888 - 1974)
 
Markneukirchen, circa 1950

 
The Hoyer family is firmly established in the landscape of German bow making as real aristocrats. Otto Hoyer is probably the best known, but there are many other Hoyers who produced excellent bows. Owning and playing with any Hoyer bow is something that can be said with pride - they have a superb reputation.

Hermann Albert Hoyer (1888 - 1974) began working independently in 1911 and spent his entire working life in Markneukirchen.

This bow pleases from every perspective - as much in its workmanship as in its playing properties, which simply put, are excellent. It is a beautifully elegant bow, and in excellent condition.

As with all H. A. Hoyer's bows, this one bears the stamp 'Herm. Albert Hoyer.

Weight :
  60.3 g

The Stick :
  Round, good brown pernambuco.

The Nut :
  Ebony, simple eye. Both frog and adjuster button are original to the bow.

Mountings :
  Silver-nickel.

Wrapping :
  Silver-plated copper wire wrapping. Black leather thumbpad.

Tip Slide :
  It looks like bone, but recently done. The peak and slide are of two pieces..

Condition :
  Excellent with no cracks or repairs. The frog is free from stress cracks; it has a few superficial scratches to the right flank, but these pose no structural threat to the bow.

Provenance :
  This bow was part of the collection of an important soloist - Clementine de Boeck, who died in 1989. She left her instruments and bows to her son. The entire collection was bought by Johan Grobbelaar in 2009.
