Finally, an effective and fun solution to quickly developing proper bow grip for the budding cellist! Designed and manufactured by well-known Suzuki teachers Ruth and Martha Brons, the Cellophant is easy to install and start using, right away. Even better, the Cellophant quickly and naturally allows the student to develop proper positioning and muscle memory. The accessory opens the palm to relax the hand, and the circle of the elephant's trunk directs a flexible thumb to the intersection of the frog and stick. Anatomical features of the elephant, such as toenails and legs, provide tactile reference points, for consistent bow holds from practice to practice. The Cellophant also is designed to deliberately add a touch of weight to assist beginning players to achieve a bit more effortless tone. Fits all size cello bows.
