About This Item

The fastest, gentlest way to develop effective bow hold

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 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. Available in Concert Black, Bright Blue and Sparkly Pink.

Can my son who plays a half size cello use this or would you recommend the cellophant for him?

Hi Darcie! The Bow Hold Buddies work great with violin and viola! However, we recommend the cellophant for cello students. Thanks for your question!

re: the frog bow hold, once you install it, how does it fit in the case?...Does it fit well in the case after installation? Thanks

SHAR Answer:

Hi Diana! The Bow Hold Buddies are designed to be easily attached and removed from your bow. Depending on your case, you may or may not be able to store your bow with the Bow Hold attached. If your case does not allow for storage while the Bow Hold is attached, simply remove and store them separately. If you have any additional question, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-248-7427.
