Baroque Bows Late Seventeenth / Early Eighteenth Century

 

Designs for late seventeenth century Italian repertoire such as Corelli, and German repertoire such as Buxtehude, Biber through to Bach. Owing much to dance and speech rhythms, and rhetorical ideas and forms, for which they were originally designed to convey, these convex styles of bows give a clear, varied, full, round, voluptuous, sensual sound and articulation (perfect for heavy Italian and medium-heavy Germanic mid to late Baroque stringing), giving optimal simultaneous note shape and string contact.
