I'm selling my Albert Nurnberger French bow for $1,200.
I purchased the bow in 1996 from Boston String Instrument Co. I paid $1,400 for it.
I recently sent these photos for a rough verbal appraisal to Volker Nahrmann (http://www.nahrmannbass.com
). At this point in time I have not acquired official appraisal paperwork.
Nahrmann said the bow is worth somewhere between $1,500-2,000 - even with the damaged tip, and it will definitely need to be rehaired.
I would *really* like to see this bow go to a good home - someone who will enjoy it and use it. I tried eBay last year and didn't have a lot of success. From reading the forums, it's my understanding it could take a while to find a buyer.
