    Sam Kolstein oval stamp Zimmerman model German bow. Beautiful stick in great condition. Jake from Kolstein recently worked on it including rehair, rechanneling the top of the frog and installed a heavier gauge German silver top plate, also installed the silver ring on the turn button. The ivory tip has no cracks.

    Bow is from the 80’s by Sam himself. I bought the bow in ’04. Long before I owned it there were two repairs made in the tip. A very slight crack only needing glue (hard to see) and a repair requiring a spline slightly visible in the pics. The bow is solid and sturdy weighing 127 grams. Hardshell case included and free shipping. According to Barrie replacement value is $3,500.

    Check out the bow in Jersey City, NJ or we could make other arrangements around NY.

    Cool thanks! Jake from Kolstein described the bow as “Sam Kolstein oval stamp Zimmerman model” so that’s what I went with.
