The way to the right Cellobow
The perfect interplay between bow and cello ...
At Violin Leonhardt in Mittenwald you will find everything the musician's heart desires. Since 1926, the Leonhardt family stands for tradition and quality in violin making. If you have found a beautiful cello that suits you, there is still the right "tool". Even a cook needs the right tool to cast a good dish. That is why it is particularly important: Only when the bow and the cello are in perfect harmony for the musician can the cello unfold its great sound and make the musician happy!
This is why it is so important to select the right cellobogen. The quality and the use of the instrument bow will significantly influence the sound of the celli.
The right selection of cellosaites is also of great importance. All these things you will find on our site and you will be given detailed advice. No matter whether new arches or the trade with old instruments, here no wishes remain open!
The shape of the bar of the bow is often octagonal and made of wood. Mostly used here is Fernambuk or Brasilholz. The flexibility of the wood is very important for an instrument bow. On this bar, arched hairs are made of Mongolian horse hair. The thrust of the bow often consists of mother-of-pearl, but also of silver, nickel silver or gold. A round mother-of-pearl ornament, the so-called eye, is often inserted into the frog on both sides. By the frog the tension of the bow hair can be regulated. When selecting the right cellobogen, care should be taken to ensure quality and processing.
