Baroque Bows

Baroque bows (1630 – 1750) are different from the modern bow, materially and in construction. In the baroque era the best bows were made from tropical wood, usually snakewood or ironwood. The same is true today.

With its fine measurements, light weight, little camber and narrow band of hair, it is possible to play baroque bows with a quick response and clear articulation. They can sound very pure and elegant.
In a very short time every musician realizes that this is the perfect bow for baroque music.

The models for my own baroque bows come from a time between 1650 and 1720. They have a screw frog. The stick is made from snakewood or ironwood. Frogs and buttons are either made of wood or certified ivory. I also build bows with clip-in frog on request.

Update:
For me as a bow maker, it is always a little difficult to explain what makes a good baroque bow.
Therefore I am very pleased that I can refer you to this link if you are interested.

Augustin Hadelich speaks about Johann Sebastian Bach and playing with a baroque bow.
A very informative interview and such a wonderful recording of the Bach's six Solo Sonatas and Partitas. Highly Recommended.
