Bow Hold Buddie


bow-hold-buddieThe original purpose of the Bow Hold Buddy for violin or viola was to prevent the thumb, index finger and ‘pinky’ from straying out of position. According to Ruth Brons, the inventor, “With these three fingers in place and in control of the stick, the other two fingers, hand and bow arm are more relaxed and ready to learn those beginning bow strokes”. The Bow Hold buddy comprises two parts – the Frog and the Hold Fish. The Frog also strongly encourages the thumb to remain bent. This product has been enthusiastically taken up and we’d love to hear your feedback on how you’re getting on
