Violin Bow Buddy Fish & Frog - The fastest, gentlest way to develop effective bow hold
Manufacturer: Things 4 Strings®
SKU: 2VIBOWBBHB
R 575,00
R 460,00

The bow has often been called "the violinist's breath." While violin bow technique varies a bit among fine players, all agree the primary goals of the violin bow hold are balance, control, and lack of tension. The Bow hold buddies bow accessory instantly positions and supports all the fingers of the bow hold!

The hood of the set's "Frog" directs the inside corner of thumb tip to the intersection of the frog and stick. The rim of the hood encourages the thumb to remain bent and flexible. The middle finger is directed to oppose the thumb. The HOLD FISH pinky support, included in the 2-piece BOW HOLD BUDDIES set (and also available separately) directs the tip of the pinky slightly to the rear of the top of the stick. The sloped walls of the pinky-tip opening allow for finger flexibility. The accessory securely slides along the stick, to rest next to ring finger, allowing for a custom fit for all hand sizes, age 3 thru adult. This placement allows for the points of contact of the index and pinky fingers to be equidistant to that of the thumb.

The accessory does not preclude the normal points of contact with the stick; it simply prevents the thumb, index and pinky fingers from wandering out of position. With these three fingers in place and in control of the stick, the middle two fingers, hand and bow arm are more relaxed and ready to learn those beginning bow strokes. Fits all size violin and viola bows.</p?
