Music China 2017: Shanghai New International Expo Center, October 11 - 14


Meet us in Shanghai!

Music China 2017: Shanghai will gather together over 130,000 instrument importers, dealers, distributors, retailers, music schools & academies, orchestras and musicians!

Meet Things 4 Strings® accessories with our president and inventor, violin teacher Ruth Brons, and China Agent, Jerrie Zhao at Location W1E74. We are most honored to have been invited to share a booth with VSA (Violin Society of America) Gold Medalist bow maker Long Gen Chen. Please stop by to say hello!

Things 4 Strings® accessories allow beginning orchestral string players the benefits of a relaxed and effective bow hold. Students enjoy producing bowed tones right from their very first lesson, and, with no need for constant bow hold corrections, string teachers and parents optimize valuable instruction and practice time. Made in the USA, these accessories are molded of the finest medical-grade silicone rubber, are durable and washable, and are universal-fit for players aged 3 through adult on any size bow.

Accessory inventor and studio teacher Ruth Brons was honored for her work advancing strings education by the American String Teachers Association (ASTA) with the prestigious Kudos Award. “Bow Hold Buddies dramatically reduce the time it takes students to master a relaxed and effective bow hold. Students' energy can be redirected towards other challenges. Quicker progress, more fun!” said Brons.

Launched in 2009, Things 4 Strings® patented accessories have rapidly achieved popularity with studio and classroom teachers worldwide. “For those who can already play, the necessary bow hold corrections are done very quickly. They practice with the bow hold buddies at home, and the new habits form effortlessly. For beginners, they provided an easy and safe introduction to an excellent bow hold. I have been known to be skeptical with regard to gadgets - but not here. These Bow Hold Buddies (and Cellophants) work great, and we will keep using them!” said Kurt Sassmannshaus, String Dept. Chair, University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music.

Our Dealer/Distributor Locator Service efficiently connects retailers and end-users to local shopping options in over 25 countries.
