Viola and Cello Bows

Welcome to our Gallery of
Beginner Bows

We have a great selection of bows for sale for beginners in 3 different materials: Pernambuco (per-nam [like man backwards]-boo-co), Brazilwood, and Carbon Fiber. As beginners most of our mental resources are used for reading and fingering and not much is left over for bowing. So, student bows are not as stiff as better bows because a stiff bow in the hands of a novice squawks when you press too hard and squeeks (skids) when you do not press hard enough which makes it harder to learn to play. However, as reading becomes easier and fingering becomes more habitual there are more mental resources to give to bowing. As bowing becomes straighter, smoother, and more relaxed, our playing becomes better. As we continue to improve, we may begin to play better than our bow will produce and it is time to think about move up to an intermediate bow. Our bows for beginners are priced between $135 and $600.
