Baroque Snakewood Violin Bows

Hi Jehpin:

I have received the bows and they look very nice. They play well. However, they are 2 1/4 inches shorter than my regular carbon graphite bow. Did you send me the correct size? They almost look as if they should be for a 3/4 or 1/2 violin. Can you let me know please.




Hi Bonnie,

that's great! Good to hear they arrive in good condition. But oh no! I should emphasize when I send you the photos, the lengths are on them, so you will notice it better. But the bows are correct size, as these are baroque period bows, which are traditionally shorter at 697mm. My clients who have bought this use it for a different playing style, to experience how the player play the music in that period. I think some music which are written in this period takes into consideration of the length too. But I don't know which ones....

Hope this helps. :) Let me know if you need more help.
