Stephan S. from Zurich used to play a N. Delaune violin bow. He recently changed for one of our Collaborator violin bow, mounted with an acoustic frog.
He shares his remarks
I’d like to let you know that the bow taught me a lot already during this short period of two weeks:
I made very good progress with my playing: I need less effort in the right hand and shoulder and the playing became lighter. I don’t have to put extra pressure when changing to the D and G string. My position is more upright now, as a result there is much less tension in the right hand and shoulder and I can play with ease and the weight of the bow instead of pressure.
I can concentrate on pulling the bow evenly which gives a much calmer and clearer melodic line. In addition, the bow brings out additional lower harmonics on the strings which were not there before resulting in more colours and a more ‘grounded’ and richer sound from the instrument.
I will need a bit more time to adjust some of the strokes to the new position of the balance of the bow.
