We would love to hear from you!
I am enjoying it.
My bow hold has improved in such a short time.
You have given me hope that the quality of my playing will improve as well.
Thank you again.
Your loyal customer and aspiring student-pro violinist,
Deirdre Edgell, Artistic Director, Got Strings? Youth Orchestra:
As a 25+ year string teacher and violinist for the past 40 years,
I dearly love your product!
______________________________________: I am teaching both of my daughters to play the cello.
It's frustrating for me and for them to constantly be correcting their fingers when holding the bow so I bought this.
I've tried the cellophant on all three of our bows (full size, 1/4, 1/8) and it fits securely to all three (does not move around).
However, I had to remove the screw from the bow, place the cellophant, and then reattach the screw when applying to the bow.
So I would recommend having a cellophant for each bow as switching back and forth would be irritating.
It is good quality, comfortable, and cute.
I wish the price was better, but it is a specialty item (very small market).
I would recommend.
Melissa Hassell, Teacher:
We met at the Suzuki convention and I bought a bunch of bow hold from you and I love them for my students!!
Thanks so much for your wonderful product.
R. Hauser, Adult Amatuer:
I developed osteoarthritis in my thumb.
I tried using the "Bow Hold Buddie" to see if it might provide more relief.
It works quite well!
Geetha Kamath, Parent:
I received the bow buddy on Thursday.
Thanks for the same.
My son is in love with it.
It has motivated him to hold the bow which he was finding it difficult in the beginning.
Donna Hebert, Teacher:
Love your "Bow Buddies".
So do my adult students,
who use your product to help them learn faster and avoid stress injuries!
I am teaching myself to play violin using the Essential Elements 2000 book series since I do not have access to a teacher where I live.
Regardless of the book, DVD, and YouTube videos on how to hold the violin bow, it still didn't feel quite right to me.
I found this little guy and hoped it would be what I needed to correct my bow hold- lo and behold, it was!
The instant I used it, I was able to correct what I was doing wrong.
I kept it on my bow for a month or two to build up some muscle memory in my fingers.
When I took it off, it was a little weird getting used to the weight that came off,
but it was so much easier to hold the bow properly because my hand was "trained" by this tool.
I highly recommend it!
Lauren Lamont, Suzuki Violin Teacher:
I purchased a bow hold buddie for violin at the SAA conference in Minneaspolis last month.
I would like to buy another one already!
Howard Lee Harkness, Teacher:
I was initially skeptical regarding the Bow Hold Buddy,
but I have had very good results from using this as a teaching aid.
This item would of interest to any violin teacher who takes absolute beginners.
The improvement in the bow hold is almost instant!
