Carbon, pernambuco veneer.
Wendell Kretzschmar, for whom this range of bows is named, persevered blithely with a fascinating series of free lectures on music in the small German town of Kaisersaschern in the early twentieth century, despite abysmal attendance by a bewildered and indifferent public. But among the handful of regular attendees, and deeply engaged in his presentations, is the young Adrian Leverkühn, the protagonist of Thomas Mann's Doctor Faustus.
Urtext is pleased to pay up to $100 towards the first rehair of your new Kretzschmar bow to your local bow service agent. Contact us for details and conditions of this offer.
