|BowGrip promotes Correct Positioning for smooth bowing and ensures that your bow does not slip and maintains thumb flexibility. BowGrip easily slips on and attaches to any Violin bow.|
Fig. 1 To Install your Bow Grip on your bow
Loosen screw at the frog completely and remove the Frog. Allow the Frog to hang outside of the bow. Slip the BowGrip over the wooden bottom gently pushing up towards the Wrapping. When the BowGrip reaches the wrapping, slide and twist the Bow Grip partially over the wrapping of the bow. If excess resistance is felt you may have to heat the Plastic Bow Grip with a Hair Dryer or other means for a few seconds to make it pliable. Use care and caution.
Fig. 2 Positioning of BowGrip
Leave ¼” of space between the BowGrip and the Frog for the tip of your thumb. Proper positioning of the BowGrip provides for a 1/8″ to 1/4″ separation between the wrapping and the frog when tightened for use. This allows the tip of your bent thumb to rest between the Frog and the BowGrip. A bent thumb allows for smoothest bow direction changing.
Fig. 3 Thumb placement
BowGrip helps to keep the thumb “bent” for flexibility. The thumb tip is placed in the space between the BowGrip and the frog for proper positioning and bow holding.
