While cello bow technique varies widely among fine players, all agree a primary focus of the cello bow hold is lack of tension, and a flexible thumb.
The good news is that the Patented CelloPhant® bow accessory instantly positions and supports the fingers of the bow hold!
The accessory opens the palm to relax the hand, and the circle of the elephant's trunk directs a flexible thumb to the intersection of the frog and stick.
The various anatomical features of the elephant, such as toenails and legs, provide tactile reference points, for consistent bow holds from practice to practice.
The accessory also is designed to deliberately add a touch of weight to assist beginning players to achieve a bit more effortless tone -- more tone with which to fall in love!

I originally bought this for my daughter that had just started cello,
but found that my son with 2 years experience also liked to play with the cellophant.
It really helped reinforce his correct hand position!" -- L. Martin, parent
