This is why it is so important to select the right violin bow. The quality and also the application of the stringed instrumental bow will significantly influence the sound of the violin.
The right choice of violin strings is also very important. All these things will have you at our site. Whether you are looking for new arches or the trade in old arches, you will find them in our company.
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 a violin bow. On this bar, arched hairs are made of Mongolian stallion 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 violin bow, care should be taken to ensure quality and workmanship. The right rosin is not to be forgotten, also here we offer you a great high-quality selection.
