Basic Brazil Redwood
1/2-size Student Violin Bows
Several are available

These bows are made mainly for students and the aim is to provide the student with advantages of a good wooden stick and traditional fittings as opposed to the usual beginners fare of bows made of man-made fibres. The rhetoric behind this is simple - a wooden bow responds differently and better to a player's intentions than bows of other fibres. Hence a child or beginner is exposed from the onset to the experience of playing with a wooden bow and to dealing with the specific response and characteristics of a wooden stick, as opposed to other cheap perfunctory beginner bows of man-made fibres.

This bow is of very finely grained Brazil Redwood (Massaranduba) cut into a round stick. The hardwood frog is mounted in chrome-nickel with a matching three-ring button (see photos). It also has a real mother-of-pearl eye and slide and tip slide is of bone. The bow has chrome-nickel lapping and a leather thumbpad. At 53.5 cm the hair length is within normal 1/2-size specs. The weight is 48 gm, which is perfect for its size. These bows have good response, balance and articulation.
